As I’m sure all you LJ’s that make projects for your kids/grandkids once you do for one you have to do for all. That’s where I’m at now. A rocking horse for Santino, a rocking airplane for Luca and now a rocking motorcycle for Blake. Though I might be the only LJ that makes these for his grandkids before they are one year old. (LOL) I found the plans for this one on online however it was pretty basic such as all the components were just flat pieces of wood, not good enough for me. Here is my rendition of the project. Nine different woods; Oak, Purple Heart, Bubinga, Pudauk, Bocote, Wenge, Marble Wood, cocobolo and Bird Eye Maple. The first coat of Tung oil in these pics, only four more coats to go. No more grandkids on the way yet but open for suggestions for the next rocker. Thanks for looking.
