My daughter-in-law sent me a photo she had found of this ‘rocking llama’, along with a subtle hint that perhaps I would be interested in making something like it for my grand daughter. So, I decided to make one using the photo she sent. I printed the photo on paper, drew a grid on it and proceeded to scale it off full size, and build it. I managed to get it done only a week after the grand daughters birthday, but she didn’t really care!!! Made with Baltic Birch Plywood with scraps of hardwoods for the seat and handle.
Thanks for looking.
