Rocking Airplane

My second attempt at a rocker. A friend had a similar rocking airplane (store-bought) for his daughter and when I saw it, I said, “I can build that!” So I got some pics and rough dimensions and got to work. The thickness of boards and a few details of layout changed but it’s pretty similar to the store-bought one. Only his was painted instead.

Yes, the kids love it. I was worried that my oldest would think her rocking horse was lame after the next child got this, but they each like theirs best but always share as well.

I like that rocker alot. I saw the ones online and I’m sure you spent less making it yourself than what they wanted online for them. You also get the satisfaction of having made it yourself. I want to make one of theese for my little ones do you have plans for it still.
