I’ve spent the better part of the last three months renovating my garage into a workshop. As such, I’ve had just about zero free time to work on any projects. Any time I had, I used to put this Rocking Horse together for a friend of mine who just had her first child.
It was all cut out on the scrollsaw, then glued up. Most pieces had to be jigsawed, scrolled, glued, flush routed, sanded, and then stained. Really it can be done in a few days but I think it was almost a six week project!
I've a little more about it here on my website.
There are also a lot more photos up there as well.
It’s made from pine, with Tas Oak dowel for the pegs, eyes and handles.
As you can see, I have a LOT to learn about applying finishes. As much as I look at it and find fault, I know that when children play with it, they think it’s just perfect, so I’m cool with making mistakes. :-)
