A couple of weeks ago, a local horse owner asked me if I could make her a feed storage box for her horse. She told me the approximate dimensions that she wanted and she also said that it had to have locking wheels and a vent screen on the end of the box. She said she wanted some kind of a handle on the end for easy mobility, so I installed a rope handle. I told her that I would price out the materials required and give her a quote for my labour to build the box. She accepted the quote I gave her and for the past several days have been building the box, which I just completed. The sides and bottom of the box are 3/4” red oak plywood. The lid is 1/2” birch plywood in a rabbited pine frame. Mahogony trim along the ends to conceal the open grain on the plywood. The bottom of the box is screwed to a sturdy framework of 2×4’s. She is coming over with her truck this week to pick up the box. She doesn’t know this yet, but I also put the name of her horse in wooden letters ‘Amigo’. The exterior has benn finished with tung oil, but no finish on the inside for food safety reasons. I hope she like the box.
