Western Tack Trunk

This past weekend a friend of mine from Kentucky came up and we built this tack box for his daughter who rides and shows horses. He is going to give this to her for Christmas. This turned out really good, and wanted to share. We were able to weld new horseshoes to spell his daughters name " Elise". This posed to be slightly difficult, but turned out great. 

Hope she enjoys this! We have about 25-30 hours into making it. It was a neat project and I enjoyed getting to spend the weekend with a good friend. 

Take care,

Bottoms up!

A few weeks ago my wife and I were watching "Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy" (Yes I got her to watch!) On this episode he was in a ski lodge bar in Milwaukee  and low and behold something caught my eye...The shot ski!! And thus my vision for "The Shot Board"! 

Here is a video so you can see the shot ski in action:

And here is my version...

Doesn't everyone need one of these? 

I can customize them many different ways. Prices may vary depending what type of shot glasses you'd like me to use and any painting/details.

Email me at Mynattdavid@yahoo.com with questions and to get your very own "shot board"!

Corn Hole Boards!!! Great Christmas gifts!

Here are just a few custom designed and hand painted corn hole boards I have done this past year.

These boards are made from quality wood, painted and sealed so they hold up nicely in the rain! They have legs that fold under the boards for easy storing. 
Each set of corn hole boards come with 8 bean bags for tossing. 
Because of the different designs prices may vary due to the detail of the logo. Please email me (Mynattdavid@yahoo.com) with logo ideas, and I will be happy to get right back to you with a sketch and a quote. 

Custom Mantels

 Custom mantels, made to order. This is my custom built mantel with matching crown molding that I built last year for my living room.
 My wife wanted something simple yet functional, to keep with our "farmhouse" feel.
Mantels can be built based on your specifications and taste. Please email me (Mynattdavid@yahoo.com) your telephone number and I will be happy to come give you a free quote on your custom mantel!

Mirror with coat hooks

 Very nice mirror with coat hooks.
 I can customize mirror size and types/stain of wood.
Another piece my wife loves.

As seen here price is $100

 Desk can be made to any length or height and any shade of stain or paint.
 Boards are given the rustic look by beating the wood with heavy chains, hammer and steel wool brush.
 This desk is skirted with a painters drop cloth fabric in keeping with the rustic feel.
Here is the finished desk in my home. My wife loves it.

Cost of desk as seen in this picture is $130.
