I made this rocking horse when my first daughter was young. It turned out larger than I intended, since I didn’t use any plans, like usual. But, its fun because adults do often like to take it for a ride!

Its also made from construction lumber, and filler to fill the holes and knots. I built it when we were still in the apartment, so all I had was a jigsaw, RO sander and drum sander. Lacquer sprayed on finish. The horse’s mane is a mop head.

Pete, that is a jam up rocking horse. Very nice work.
