The rocking horse project is complete :)

About 35 hours total build time….tried to write about it in a blog…so much detail work and sanding of course…

Solid red oak construction, 1” thick…classic oak stain with cherry stain trim…pink bow since it is for a girl…

This was a lot of fun and one of the more complicated projects I have built so far…

On to the next project :)

Terrific job! I like the look.
I’ve built two of these, and they are fun.
