Default "DIY: Wood Fly Boxes" (a method using a hand-held router and enclosed templates)

I originally posted this free book about 6 years ago but have made lots of changes and improvements so it is time again to upload the newest copy of "DIY: Wood Fly Boxes" (a method using a hand-held router and enclosed templates).

This is the best method if you don't have a CNC router because you get consistent results and the process is repeatable without variations.

================================================== ==============================

It started as a question of, "How'd you do that?" and turned into a book. Here is a free copy of that book, "DIY: Wood Fly Boxes" (a method using a hand-held router and enclosed templates) that I have written and published on Pinterest, Indestructible, Router Forums, etc.. So far, I have given away over 8,000 copies of this book all over the world.

Please let me know if you see any errors, omissions, or other improvements that can be made to it. Enjoy....

I used to tie flys many years ago so I have contemplated making fly boxes for many years. I start looking for parts then something comes up and I drop the project.

This information is great and I thank you for sharing your PDF.

I just quickly browsed through the book and cannot say enough about your generosity in sharing it with the Forum. Please accept my humble THANK YOU...!

As a flytyer and flyfisherman I can truly appreciate the material in the book. Be certain that I will read it "cover to cover" and am sure I will enjoy it.

Thank you again for sharing such a wonderful prize...

You’ve got some mad skills there Gary . I’ve heard someone talking about fly boxes recently, and now I know what their referring to.
My last boss lives to fish . Hopefully someday I can make him some

Thank you so much for your kind words. It has involved a lot of research and time in making it what it is today. I'm always open to suggestions for improvement.
