Update. Found another picture of it/one finished. In case some might wonder, I do have that lower crossbar suspended above the floor.
This isn’t much of nothing compared to the fine stuff I have been seeing here and I am rather new as a wood worker. But, I have made a few things in my day and just want to put something up!
My saddle stands are popular with my friends anyway. I know a saddle stand is no big deal, lot’s of folks make them and you can buy them cheap to. But mine is a bit different. It was originally made to order to friend’s specs though the design is mine. Then folks that saw his wanted one.
It is heavy duty compared to what you get from the feed stores or craft malls. But, what sets it apart is that there ain’t a nail or screw one in them. They, this, is all pegged together. This one was fully built but hadn’t been finished when I took this picture. I made the leg/bases interlocked. These are strong enough to hold my 250# of lard and not wobble. Yeah, over-kill I know. But believe me, some folks like things like that. This one will hold two saddles btw. I need to make more. Right now a pair of my best built saw horses are doing double duty as saddle stands. Not good for saddles and I want my stands back!
