I have been asked to build a tack box for a young rider who is mainly going to be using it at fairs and horse shows. It is going to be in the elements to some point but not out in the pooring rain/mud etc… She also wanted this tack box to be a heirloom peice, something her daughter could keep for years and repurpose in the case she finds a new love other than riding horses.
I was going to use a spar urethane (minwax, clear gloss) to protect it from the elements/uv rays, is this a good idea or would you all recommend something else? [The tack box is built from birch plywood and pine (money was a issue for the customer)]
I appreciate your help!
