A couple of years ago my partner Mark Hensley and I had this job out in Wyoming, we both live in central Florida. The job was cabinetry for the horse barn. Both the tack room for the horses equipment but also a workshop, complete with stationary tools, for any of the metal and woodworking that may be needed on site. We were at a hunt camp about 40 miles from Metesee. Try to find it on a map!
That’s Mark in the first picture and the last picture gives you an idea of where we were, in the background is the horse barn. It got down to 27 below and snowed about 18 inches over the two weeks we were there.
All the parts for the job were cut and flat packed at our shop in San Antonio Florida. We shipped everything including tools to the jobsite and built everything there. It was two weeks of madness! I wish I could put up more pictures, it was awesome!!!
The cabinetry was all prefinished birch plywood, but all the drawer fronts were from a cedar tree cut down on the property, the handles are all antlers and there were lots of them!

This is my truly favorite kind of porject, one that is designed to make more projects with other materials. I can just picture hands sewing leather and shaping metal.

The pictures are great. I’ll BET that was a great project to do.

I’m from the next state south of WY, so—from the picture—you can’t tell: could be any month of the year ;-)

well your in my kind of country, what a blast that job must have been, it all looks great, really cool that you were able to pre cut and finish and send it…the views are pretty rough…and it doesn’t look like you had to deal with a bunch of folks out there…maybe a few horses..love it…

A great project but it probably would have been more fun in the summer time!

this is what its all about…love that some of the wood was harvested from the site. The story behind the wood makes it all that much better. Well done! I would love to have that barn!
