What a beauty. I need to make one of these. Anyone have some simple plans they can send? Maybe I will alter it and make it a rocking dragon…

Great Looking Rocking Horse, Rob!

Good idea to put the supporting gussets on the inside! Made a few of these horses and the ends of the rockers are fragile!

I am in the process of making the exact same one. Having trouble lining up the legs. I’m sure I’ll figure it out before my grandson is too old to use it. LOL

Bob, I forgot to ask what kind of finish did you use?

Have your say...
