DIY Tack Trunk Plans

Update 12/2/2015: The PayPal link hadn't been working, but it is fixed and working now!

Do it yourself and make your own tack trunk! If you are interested in purchasing plans to build this tack trunk, we'd be happy to sell them to you for $35. After payment is made via PayPal, you will receive a link to follow and allow you to print the PDF document. If you have any troubles please contact me directly at dock(dot)start(at)gmail(dot)com. This design is original and created entirely by my Hubby.
Buy with PayPal!

Please note: Sometimes the instant link feature is temperamental. If for some reason it isn't working please contact me directly at the email above, and I will get the plans to you ASAP. Thanks!


About my trunk:

In December 2011, my awesome Huby surprised me on Christmas morning with the beginnings of a tack trunk! By the end of February 2012, it was completed and in my tack room.
