    Posted: 11 Aug 2013 at 11:06pm
Well with eldest son now out and finding his way in the world, his cave is empty, and I thought ...YEAH!!!..Lure room, finally be able to get all those lures out of storage boxes and displayed Clap

Too slow old man, the youngest decided it was HIS play room for the Xbox, Computer desk and room for mates to sleep over Ouch bugger.

Then I thought, AHHHHH if I move all the house crap still in moving boxes in to the back of the 'play room' then I can make the former storage alcove in to my Lure Room Thumbs Up It's not as expansive as Brolly's Lure Chapel, or as busy as Cap'ns Fishing Museum, but it should look OK when finished (is there such a state Confused)
Anyway managed to move the cabinets in, get some timber strips on the wall to hang lures off, and mount some other frames for more lures and hang some of the shadow boxes.

Here's what you see on approach from garage entry


and as you turn to enter...I will be adding a door here, now that cabinets are in.


and directly to the right as you enter, the shadow box displays and Australia spoon rack

the ones on the ground are yet to be hung.

turning to the left here is what you see down the room

pardon the clutter, but the lures need unpacking somewhere Big smile
This is the wall to the left as you walk down the room

Still another strip to go on the bottom yet when clutter reduces

First Cabinet you come to

This one will predominantly be North Coast NSW and New England makers
and finally the double door cabinet at the far end

some of these groups may move, or may stay.....so many lures...so little roomConfused and still 12 storage boxes to go Embarrassed

Bob, No internal cigar lounge I am sorry, one of the hassles with renting.
Bkool, Same with wallpaper and picture hook positions, have to work with what is there, no additions.
At least I can bang nails/screws into the mdf wall on the left, that bit is my 'partition' to close the boy cave in. The wall is a slam fit between the upstairs floor beams and the concrete floor. framed up with 35 x 70 pine stud and clad in 6mm MDF.

Been a while without updates hasn't it guys Embarrassed It is still a work in progress, but more wall is covered, and I still have a couple of trays of lures procured from and since 2015 Expo, I haven't even taken down yet. Been so damn busy at work in the last 6 months, working 5 1/2 days a week and OT nearly every week day, Sat arvo comes around and it's nap time. But having a break over xmas/new year and again at the end of Jan, start of Feb. Hoping to get a pile of little jobs done then.
Will post up some more when I get the chance.

Cheers Brad

Always thought it would be funny if a dedicated lure fisho was also a crim, and broke into a house with a display....you would wake up in the morning, the crim hasbeen waiting for you, he has a you a coffee, and just wanted to hang out wiyh you and ask some questions about some of the lures......

Chris, That is something else for the breaks mate, My left wrist has been paining me since last Expo. A real tough effort to carve, the hand locks up and the carpal area burns like hell after just a couple of lures.
SOoooooo I am working on a replicator based on a lathe I picked up cheap, I want something to do the bulk of the timber removal, but retain some hands on contact. Pics of that build will follow as well.

Matt, yeah I have been quiet, you are not the only one to notice. 1 week off since May was nice, but not enough to really recharge the system.

Sel, it is still BLA without the family ownership ties, but since joining the multi- national, mega-corporate world, it has got 100% busier. Hopefully the incoming stock will slow down after thier massive ordering schedule settles. Surgery is still a long way off I hope.

Cheers Guys
