A rocking horse I made for a friend of mine who swore she would never have a baby, well at 42 she just had a baby boy. Made with mahogany, walnut and maple.

Nice job!! I built one of these a month ago. Had a blast. I can’t wait to see the pictures of the child riding. How about you?

Very nice work, I made one some time ago for my baby duck. She still rocks and still enjoys it this one toy that will never go out of fashion. Bravo,

That’s a really nice rocking horse and her son will not only enjoy it but will relish it when he gets older.

Nice rocker. They are like a right of passage for Grandpa’s everywhere, not sure where you fit in there, but the end result is another happy kid. Nice work, and thanks for sharing.

A GREAT JOB. I like it extremely well.

Many of the “rocking horses” I see n the wood-sites have been just blindly following the pattern. This shows innovation and a real style too.

I have made 85+ (31+ years of making them now )—rocking toys of many sizes; including alpacas, elephant, and 4 sizes of horses. The horses include a few that supported over 250 pounds easily.

This is the first one I have made in more than 10 years. I am getting reports from a friend that I gave one to that her kids who are 11 and 9 are still arguing of who can use it. They sit on it and either read or watch TV.
