Brooklyn Apt Lure Making Cabinet

A while back I saw a post of an entertainment center converted into a painting cabinet. I thought it was the perfect answer of containing the mess I was making in my Brooklyn apartment from crafting my balsa baits. I eventually found an armoire for $100. It cost me $90 to have it delivered to my apt, then maybe another $50 to convert it the way I wanted. It works great though!! It is located in our bedroom and is able to contain I'd say 99% of the dust created from cutting and sanding. Its a little crowded, but for my small operation its perfect.

I know what it is like to be severely hampered by space and I think your solution is excellent. You obviously have a very understanding partner too, this is very important. When you calculate your lure building budget, don't forget to set aside some flower and chocolate money.

Don't worry I took care of her this Christmas. But lets not forget, she is the one that pulled me 6 hours from my favorite fishing hole... The best I can get now is hooking trash and an occational body at Coney Island... Though, that is the whole reason I got into this hobbbie. If I can't fish I may as well be making something I can fish with.
