Horse hair tassels are beautiful, meaningful and simple to make. They make a wonderful gift and a perfect forget-me-not.
To make a horse hair tassel you’ll need the following things:
- 30 cm of horse hair.
- Waxed twine.
- Leather trim.
- Leather rope.
- Strong glue.
And here’s how to do it:
- – Fold your horse hair in half and tie some wax thread about 3 cms below the fold.
- – Line the inside of a section of leather trim long enough to wrap around the tassel. Wrap it around, making sure the trim covers the wax thread.
- Sew the leather trim closed at the end.
- Attach a loop of leather rope at the top of the tassel.
- Trim the tassel to desired length.

Cost to Build A Metal Barn
How much does it cost to build a metal barn?
Metal barns can be a great investment; they offer more storage space and they look great.
Whether you’re after an Aussie-style barn or an American Barn, we have you covered. Each job is different, so for an exact figure you might want to get a quote (we answer within 24 hours).
For an estimate of how much your barn might cost, see below:
Small to medium barns
A small to medium barn includes anything with a floor area up to 10m x 10m. These can be used for storage, workshops or car parking.
Smaller stable barns are often used for horses, and these can cost as little as $20,000.
Cost range: $20,000 – $30,000
Taking a step up in size will bring you into the next cost bracket. Medium barns range in size, up to 29m x 12m.
Cost range: $30,000 – $55,000
Very large, industrial barns can cost as much as $200,000.
These range in size up to 61m x 27m and are large buildings. We’ve had clients build barns with indoor riding arenas inside them, and we’ve had clients building industrial dairy barns.
Cost range: $55,000 – $200,000
The Plasma Cutter In Steel-melting Action
We use a plasma cutter to cut out plates and cleats that go onto our buildings. The machine uses a concentrated beam of super heated, electrically conductive gas to melt a pinpoint of steel. We can use this machine to cut any shape necessary from a sheet of steel.
