I’m recovering from rotator cuff surgery so I finally have time to post a few of my earlier projects. I’ll be out of the shop for a few more months and this is how I get my necessary woodworking fix.
Here’s a rocking horse I made for my son a while ago. Yeah … I know. I’m 59 … but he’s SOOOOOO cute we just HAVE TO adopt him. My daughter wants one for my granddaughter (the horse … not the child.) but she wants one with a mane. Horse is red oak and is finished with shellac. The leg braces/foot supports were added as an afterthought and it took a little trial & error to get the compound miters right. Just made it more interesting. My wife was tossing out an embossed leather pocketbook so I “rescued” it from the trash can and used it to line the seat. (Now she bags & ties up all the garbage.)
