Decided it is time to make a new rocking horse design, well not exactly new, this is a variation of an existing design called Taylor. Scarlet is a little smaller, and is made from recycled maple, which once served as a bed. My preferred method of construction is to make template patterns using thin MDF and using a pattern cutting bit in a router mounted in a (home made) router table. I find templates are useful in many ways – it allows me to minimize waste by carefully arranging t...
Rocking Horse from Grizzly Plan #6: The Bonding of Rider and Horse plus Glimpse of the Steed's Future
It’s Emily’s third birthday, and there’s a party, and stuff, and cupcakes, and 5 grandparents, and the camera. These are in chronological order. 1. Checking the hooves. 2. Discussing saddle styles. 3. A few fatherly tips. (The pen on his ear was to record any apt quotations of the moment.) Mom smiles from the margin of the pasture. 4. “Climb aboard,” a classic unintentional pun. 5. Gramma gets involved. 6. Little B...

Hi Everyone, My name is Matthew Agate. I’m 10 years old from Placentia Newfoundland Canada.

Plans for the Fall Charity Build are now underway. The project I selected is a small rocking horse from a WOOD Magazine plan. WOOD has been kind enough to offer the plan for free for a limited period of time. After the build, they go back into their store. I chose this project because it is fairly simple to build and lends itself well to charitable donation. So here’s how this is going to work. For each person that builds a rocking horse (and sends me a picture), I’ll be donati...
Well, I am started down the road now to creating a rocking horse for my granddaughter, Emma.She will be two years old this Christmas, and has now just begun to walk. So I figure, if I start it now,I’ll finish in time for this Christmas… This horse is being created loosely from the Woodsmith Rocking Horse, issue #65, with a little creative flair this time around. I last built one of these some 16 years ago, for my oldest granddaughter, who is going to graduate from high school next...
Here is a great project done by Studio Ve. They have some pretty cool projects.
Refers to project posted here. The dry fit passed inspection from my quality inspector so it was time to move on to finishing. I disassembled it to three major components and put on Minwax Dark Walnut Stain. Of course I did this on my finishing/pool table. You can see the unstained head sitting on the table also. I installed the handle in the head with glue and two finish nails through the edge to hold it steady. I am using Waterlox Original Medium as a sealer and it’...
