This looks like a great project. I see that it appears to have several duplicate parts, including the arms (inside and outside), rockers, seat sides, head sides, and manes (if they’re not part of the head sides). When I built Ian's Rocking Horse for my grandson, I first created a set of MDF patterns which I then used to lay out and pattern route the “real” parts. This looks like an ideal project for that approach, and I now have a new 4 month old granddaughter, so it’s on the “to do” list. Yours looks fabulous. Thanks for posting it.

Sandy, I done a couple of projects using pretty much the same method as you’re referring to for duplicating parts. With all due respect, it may be for some people, to me though, it took the fun out of it. If I was building things like this for profit, I’d make templates for everything I cut. I do it for fun though and enjoy cutting each part seperately and then sanding to match them. Everyone else though, if you want a way to duplicate parts exactly and easily though, the method Sandy is referring to makes short work of multiple parts.

William, if you can knock out projectx like this in a single day, without templates, your woodworking skills are way above mine. Also, when I built Ian's Rocking Horse, I knew that Ian was about to be getting a cousin, so the template approach seemed to be the way to go, especially since Rockler was having a great sale on router bits, including the template bit I used. Also, due to the price of clear, wide walnut boards, I wanted to make sure that I would be able to minimize waste (or, as I call it in my shop future pen blanks and KerfMakers). Let’s not forget, though, that actually making each template still requires individual cutting, and special care, given that the ultimate results will be duplicates of the MDF template.

As I’ve said before, though, when it comes to actually matching parts, ”... the most important tools in my woodshop for getting accurate shapes are still sandpaper and wood putty.”

In any case, I loved the project and your execution, and I’ve already ordered a set of plans.
