The smiles and joy this project brought was well worth the 30 hours in making it. It is made from solid Poplar and is a substantial piece. It weighs in at @ 90 lbs so it’s not something you want to be moving around.

I would sometime like to make a rocking CBR900, but a camel? Now that’s cool!!!! Good job and sustainable too makes it even better!

Who gets to ride it?

I’ll bet adults are tempted to try it out also.

I have to say, I’ve never seen a rocking camel, but this is pretty cool.

How fun! It looks like it would be a lot of fun to ride on this. But, I’m a bit leary as to asking where the “hairy stuff” came from . . . Who’s chest?
