I thought that I would try and build a Rocking Horse for my 1 1/2 year old Great Grand Daughter, had no idea of how hard a project of trying to make a rocking cradle could be….I used the plan for one of the horses from an earlier project of a Buck wagon and horse team, the cradle was the hardest for me as I could not find any good plans for one….

You’ve made a great rocking horse. I love making things that should stay in the family for generations. Only how long is it before someone inherits the item and who made it and when it was made is lost? Any trophy shop will make a brass plaque with the childs name, date of birth and your name as the maker and Great Grandfather. Then it will stay in the family for much longer. I put one on all the baby cradles I make. The family can put on an additional brass plaque for each child that uses the cradle.

It’s a great little rocking horse and I’m sure she loves it.
