Tack Box

So I took a look at a local tack store and nearly died when I saw how much they charge for a tack box so I decided to hire my brother and have him build me one for half the cost if not less.

What are some things you guys have found really useful?

I would love you guys to death if you were willing to post some photos if you have any. I'm a bit at loss

Haha! I know hey? $1000 for a tack box? Um no!!
Rick is going to help me build one!! He's a finishing carpenter, so it should turn out well - as long as all I do is sit and look pretty... haha!


Some useful things:

- make sure you have enough space for your saddle and saddle pads.. you don't want to shove them in.

- In the door, create another box so you're not trying to shove your bridles against your saddle

- I'd suggest getting a front-opening trunk, not a top-opening one... much more useful.

Ooh I just found this amazing site:

I have an entire tack shed to myself at my barn that comes with my board. It has five saddle racks, three different bridle/halter racks, whip hooks, a cabinet for oils and plenty of space to add anything else I need. They have a closet for blankets and stuff too. There's also a cabinet with little trays for each type of brush, dandy, curry, stiff bristled, soft bristled and so on... etc and they're even labeled so that way I'm not digging through a box/bucket or around a shelf to find the brush I need. I pull the slot open and pull a brush out. Mine are a little overflowed though because I buy too many ;]
