I saw this on YouTube and decided to make one for my Wife’s birthday. The folks down the street were getting their horses shod a couple of weeks back. I stopped in talked them out of the old shoes. I incorporated the same cross buck on the door that I used on my first project here. A technique I learned in France a few years back. The Wife likes it and it’ll just end up another dust collector on the shelf!

Looks really nice, BBob. Happy Birthday to your wife, too! New cabinets and now this: what more could a lady ask?

They may be dust collectors but they all have a story. Very stylish Bob.

NEAT—Well done project.

Dust collectors provide a very valuable service; giving all that free-range dust a home!

Joe as I recall it is about 5”. The horse was an average sized quarter horse. I’m going to try and find a pony sized shoe for a really small one.

Stellar job on the new project for you’re wife’s birthday….For some reason, women like stuff like this, and I’ll bet she’ll be very pleased, simply because you made it for her….It might even get an honorable mention for a new shop toy…...!!! Good job, buddy..!!
