Born In A Tack Trunk
For the young, future equestrian
This piece, made for a family of equestrians, is Brent's presentation piece for 2008 that embodies his best craftsmanship
and design work. It incorporates
many of Brent's tack trunk features such as leather handles and brass trunk hardware.
The primary woods are birds eye maple and walnut with painted poplar for the end standards. The cradle
can either be suspended on the jump pole between the jump standards using leather stirrup
straps, or used in the more
conventional manner resting on the floor with two removable rockers. The hood which is latched
down with trunk clasps is also removable.
