I have been asked by the girl next store to make her a tack trunk. Anyone have plans or ideas they would like to share?
Thx in advance,

I visited several tack stores to see what was available. Deep trunk to keep supplies, harnesses. Upper part of bottom trunk should have a sliding tray and a removable cleaning supply caddy. Upper lid is deep to store wraps.
Trunks get lots of abuse, so it should be beefy and protected from the elements.
Most of what I saw used plywood, I thought solid hardwood would give better service.

Have your say...
