Thanks for the kind words. I’ve got another variation in mind, hopefully it will develop in a few weeks, if I can get the shop time in…

If my wife sees this or the last trunk I’m in a world of hurt. She just gave up on her blanket chest recently. If she thinks something can be built for the horses then I won’t get any rest till it’s DONE. Just kidding, the tack box’s look great and should hold up for many years. BTKS
