Default Tying area/home office

I'm kind of glad someone drug this back up. I work out of the house, so my tying desk is also my office desk, therefore everything has to be portable.

Here's my tying desk. It's not complete. I made it out of a $4 picture frame with a piece of paneling for a bottom and some scrap 1x2" I had laying around. It needs some threadholders, but it's a start.


Overview of entire desk/office

Sweet. I like that tying station. That is an awesome idea. Man that is a nice deer in the back ground also. Way to go on making the best out of a home office.

Luck has more to do with it than anything. Here's the short version. It's a deer I killed the last year I lived in OH (2002). I missed it at 17 yards one evening while bowhunting in October (still makes me sick). I hunted almost everday after that, seeing it at a distance occassionally. Man, I passed up some big bucks that year, thinking I might get another shot at it. Shotgun season opened after Thanksgiving (I hunt with a muzzleloader). That Thursday afternoon, it stepped out of a fencerow 10 yards from where I was sitting. It's got 16 points on a 12 point frame. It scored 198 2/8" as a non-typical, somewhere in the high 170's as a typical. For a while it was the #2 Ohio muzzleloader deer. It's antlers really are that crooked on its head. One of these days I'm going to save a cape and have it re-mounted. Lessoned learned, you get what you pay for when it comes to taxidermy.

Here's some more pictures of the office that you may enjoy.
