Hello LBJ fans, well I had this idea for a while to build a saddle rack. We live in a rule farm community and there are lot’s of horses and riders around. Business has been slow so I thought I would make some thing that some of these rider enthusiast would like, I don’t have a saddle yet for my horse but I will be making one for my self, I was really happy how this came out, and more importantly I had a blast building it. It’s all Eastern Red Cedar of course and I used a poly satin finish to bring out the colors. I am selling these for $125.00, what your opinion of that? Is it to low or to high, or about right? I look forward to your feed back, thanks.

Very cool. Beautiful wood.
They could use them at the Texas Roadhouse restaurants when they put you on a saddle and sing to you n your birthday!!

I think it’s a marvelous build. What do the community riders say as to size,breadth and length as for their use. MO I imagine they ride western tack rather than English? Should you consider attaching an arm to hang the bridle reins, and Martingale if used and maybe a place to hang ad dry the blanket as Mod 1 or another option? The price should be what ever the market will bare, but don’t dare take less than materials and your time. I would think that price is quite reasonable.

Very nice looking project Todd, really like that Cedar and color pallet. Although not into the equestrian scene myself I actually was asked to design/build a saddle rack for a Co-worker who had won a prize saddle and wanted a display to keep it on. So I took some measurements and built a rack much like yours( posted in my projects pages)! I used white Cedar and finished it in a Urethane. I under charged the job (friend price) but I think you should get what your asking for yours. Good luck on your venture and once again nice work!......ROB
