My Custom Tack Box - WIP (image heavy)

Okay, so my amazing DB is a finishing carpenter, and I asked him if he could show me how to use some of his tools and make a tack box.
I was expecting something like this:

(not becuase he's not good at what he does.. but I really had no grand aspirations)


Umm... nope. Not at all. I drew a sketch of my "dream tack box" and he is slowly making it happen!!!

Oh my gosh I'm so jealous!!! That's exactly what my dream tack box looks like but my trainer would never allow me to keep something that big in her barn as we're already running out of room.
