The Wood Whisperer, Marc Spagnuolo, has started another charity build project: The Rocking Horse. I picked up the pre laminated pine panel at Lowes, printed out the design and went to work. This was a real fun project to work on. A new project demands a new tool, right? I picked up my first Lie Nielsen tool, the spokeshave. This tool worked great on this project and I can see the addiction to these tools, must have more. My 2 boys are in there 20’s and with no grandchildren in the near future, I gave the horse to little Lexie. Her mother grew up next door to us. She loves her horsey. It gave me a great feeling watching her enjoy the horse. Head over to the Wood Whisperer site: http://thewoodwhisperer.com/ and check out Marc’s stuff or even make a donation to the Woodworkers Fighting Cancer.
