I have not posted in quite a while, so I thought I would share my latest attempt. This is the first trunk I have built and found it a little challenging. I used Cherry for the majority of the trunk, inserts are Birch plywood as are the two tool boxes inside.

I am sure there a million things I could have done differently, but cut, assemble, and learn is the motto I live by. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Very nice trunk. What are the dowels in the lid for?

Thank you everyone for the comments.

Sandra….the dowels are for the riders blanket, horse socks and other items to “stuff” behind them.

Yes, very nice. I also had the same question as Sandra. What’s with the dowels?

That is one very fancy tack trunk! Great job. Loved the “horse socks” comment. Leg wraps perhaps? LOL

Great looking trunk, I made some a while back for our neigbors, The biggest challange was keeping it light enough but yet stronge enough to be used and not break apart. Well done on yours!

Good looking design and workmanship. Looks “proud”, can’t think of another word that describes it better!

However, I didn’t know horses had trunks … !
