Here is a project that I was asked to do for taking the horses saddle and other tack to the local fair. I made it from pine that I custom cut the tongue and groove. I gave it a fold down front for easy access to saddle and other items, added a saddle rest, and added 4 brass coat hooks for bridles and lead ropes as well as a compartment for saddle blankets and other items. I also added 4” casters for easier mobility. It measures 46” long x 30” high x 30”deep

Really nice design. I like the folding front. Those have a big profit margin around here. Get outside city limits and it seems like everyone has horses.

Love the look. My wife would want it as a rustic coffee table.
Well done.
