Draft Harness Boxes

Hello,
I am looking into building my own draft horse harness boxes but do not know exactly where to start. I was hopeing to find a design plan/layout for a single harness box. Any advice on where to look or if someone has one would be greatly appreciated.

Harness Box

Did you ever make a box? I am having my students create a box for drafts. It is coming together so I will add more pictures as we go. What I am finding out that there is a huge difference in design between show harness and working harness. But I think my students are solving the issues.

I would love to see photos and hopefully measurments as you build. I tried to make one once, It took two men and two boys to lift it.

Harness Box

I will add pictures as the box comes along. We will be using beatlekill pine, tongue and groove. Some Texas stars for decorations, a drawer at the bottom. Thsi will be on wheels so that it is very easy to move around. The horses name will be engraved above the doors, and when it is closed the doors will cover the drawer for supplies at the bottom. I have spent a lot of time thinking about it and now my middle school students are designing in in a CAD program as well as adding some new twists!

Timber I did see the box from mydrafthorse. That one is more for show harness that comes apart. This one will be about the same size, better tires and will have double doors and a drawer at the bottom

Country women and Taffy Clayton - Thanks for your comments and I will be uploading pictures soon.

Thanks all!

Joe
