I have wanted to make a stable for sometime and finaly got around to doing it. I started with a frame and then clad it with pine strips. I will be woodburning some detail into it once i finish the mow (the second floor) but I wanted to post this while I had the camera out. It is scaled to be used with a 7 inch horse. it measures about 7wide X8 high X15 long. the stall dividers are toothpicks set into pine strips. I used the same tooth picks set into the timbers to simulate dowels in the framing, then sanded them until they were slightly protruding from the frame. I recycled some hinges from an old picture frame and made an old fashioned swinging door latch to keep the door closed. The open bay will be a feed/tack room for a future wagon, wheel barrow, saddle rack etc. I had originally wanted to make it a sliding door, but I didn’t frame it properly to have that on the outside of the stall walls. My inlaws are horse people (raise some of the finest Hackney Horses in North America) so putting them on the inside of the stall would have been unthinkable. oh well next time… I guess we live and learn.
