I love to make toys for kids so i decided to make a rocking horse to give away. When I it was complete my wife thought she was the kid and the rocker is still in our lounge. Now when families come to visit the kids use the rocker.
We have a nursery school at our church and the head of the school saw the rocker and asked me to make one for the school. So I made two. They were made from pine, clear varnish non toxic finish.
From that I had so many request i decided to charge, hoping the orders would fall away, from the 4 i was asked to make I have now made 16.
I so enjoyed the projet that I decided to make a hand carve rocker.
It took me about 10 months to do I worked weekends I made all the leather and metal attachment except the stirups.
