He actually made the pattern from an old toy he found and was kind enough to copy it and mail it the copy to me.
Being a man of action I got right to work and a year later I finally finished two rocking airplanes.
The project is made of three quarter exterior plywood with the rockers made of Red Oak. Herbiej laminated his rockers. (I did not have time for this, Christmas is coming.) It is a simple and fun project to build, just layout, cut, sand, assemble and paint. I only ran into one snag. I was unsure how to attach the plane to the rocker, so I adapted, overcame and improvised.
One kids christmas down and one to go. (I always build a spare toy.)
