    Tip-Up Box plans/pics

    Well for all you (if there is any) tip-up freaks out there like me- I took a couple pics of box I made a couple of weeks ago with a hand wood burned pike on there. I also made the old man one with his fishing nickname on there and a different wood burn design with a tip-up and a pike slamming the minnow. Pretty quick and easy project with a couple tools around the house.

    I made the inside compartment just big enough to hold my LX-5 with a little storage on the sides. Holds your tip-ups horizontal and makes it easy to carry them in the house and dry them out without unpacking them or anything. Around here I only carry a couple with me but when in WI I like to have at least 3 rigged up for walleye and 3 rigged up for pike so this box will hold that.

    For this I just used some pine with a cedar bottom with a few coats of poly. Waterproof wood glue and a few air nail of course. I didn't want it to look too pretty.


    Ends- 2 pc @ 16"x12" (3" top)
    Sides-2 pc @ 4.5"x 18"
    Bottom- 18"x10.5"
    Handle- 18"

    Nice Pete! Now that I have some decent tip-ups I should make a nice place to store and carry them.

    Great idea! Where do you put your other 35 tip ups?

    If that's the one you made for me, you are going to have to redo it, cause I am Haywood, that one says Her-Wood.

    All I saw was the Sherwood 7000 with the Droulet curve. I had to read the post to figure out it was part of a tip up box.

    Yeah good point. I'm not sure if it fits any other one's by the way. I don't have anything else to test it with. But with Beaver Dams they don't even wiggle one bit. The flag spring on one end and the spool bottom on the other are wedged just perfect in there.

    Thats about all they would be good for, but even in an 18" length, they would probably still break and you would just have those fiberglass side panels to carry it with. I think Koho is the way to go. You would never break it, but it would be so heavy, you would need to make it with wheels.
