-Wicker Creel used as shape/size model: 1.7 lb
-Poplar Creel: 3 lb
-Poplar Creel plus Poplar tackle box: 4 lb
So, not bad at appr. twice the weight of wicker. Note that Oa, walnut or cherry would likely have been at least double the weight of the poplar creel. As a sidebar, the Poplar I used came from a friend’s farm in New Hampshire…slabbed, dried, and trucked all the way to San Diego, along with a big load of ash and cherry. I’m having a hard time talking him out of the cherry!
