The Motorbike rocker was my first attempt at a rocker of any sorts and was for my Great grandson who plays with it all the time. This took about 2 months to complete from start to finish out of that 3 weeks was just the painting. I also did a U tube slide show of the build HERE

That looks awesome! How did you treat the MDF before painting? The laminated parts are blended together as if they are one piece.

Thank you for the comments

Paulo I sanded all edges on a spindle sanding drum in the drill press after gluing together so all laminates sat flush and i used PVA glue to seal the Mdf Before undercoating and painting.
Hope this helps

What immense pleasure this piece must have given (and will continue to do). A future heirloom!
