I finished this rocking Dino about a month ago and have not gotten around to posting it yet. I made it for my nephew who is a few months shy of 2 and I brought it with me when I went to visit them last time. Initially he was very reticent about it as it is a little big for him yet but he really has taken a shining to it, which really makes me feel great.
It was a relatively simple build and turned out better than I imagined although it was more of an art project with all the shaping and fine tuning that was involved than I initially assumed. I am very greatful that I have a spindle sander/edge sander as I would still be plugging away if I hand sanded all the pieces. I made the entire thing out of 2x material with the exception of the dowel handle bar. The finish is a green stain I picked up in the oops paint section of Menard’s for a buck and the mouth is painted. I put a coat of polyacrylic to protect it. Thank you all for taking the time to look and have a wonderful day.
