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

hey, I was just wondering how you did the corners of the trunk itself, not just the lid. I’m starting a similar project soon. btw, yours is absolutely beautiful, I hope mine turns out half as good.

I did a Tack Trunk similar to this one. I rabbeted the corners and then also pinned them with dowels.
My project is here:http://lumberjocks.com/projects/97692
Feel free to ask any questions. It was a fun build for sure!

I love it andrew! and the hardware you used looks great with it. Im planning on making splined mitere corners (with dowels or biscuits) and using dowels/lap joints for the crosspieces. Ive got a model made in Autodesk inventor if youre curious. Im planning on using 4/4 walnut or mahogany for the frame and maple ply, or maple raised panels if I end up getting a new bit (and probably a router that can handle it). I’ll post some drawings with dimensions when i get around to it, its hard to describe what i mean without pictures along with it.
