My wife had bought me a book on making rocking horses many years ago. Big hint? Ignored it, too many other interests. Loaned it to a cousin. He took a course, built a horse and returned the book. I had a heap of 30+ y.o. oregon construction timber racked up under the roof of the car-port. Dressed it and started “Willow” as my wife decided to call “her”. Here is her story from pattern to complete. Hope you enjoy it. I also made the saddle from scratch. Separate story which I shall share later. More than happy to share info on sourcing “parts”.
