Would like to thank Gary from Great Falls for giving me the idea for this type of rocker. My 3 year old really enjoys “flying’ through the living room.

Very sharp looking rides You have there JDROB . There is a project floating around here on L J’s I found a while back that You might be interested in ! It is an Airplane Shelf that would probably go well with your set. if a search doesn’t bring it up in the toy section there is a sample of one in My projects page. Once again nice job!

To Lehi: After looking at Gary’s airplane rockers on Lumberjock I sketched out some plans and built this one. On the next one I’ll make the rocker than runs from the front to the back longer. The one in the picture is a little short and when my son starts rocking hard the tail smacks the ground.Thanks,Jeff

Jeff – Your C-47 turned out Great! Nice work with the details and the paint. Getting that rocker base just right and guessing the center of gravity (with a little pilot on board) can be a challenge. A few aggressive pre-school pilots occasionally managed a tailstrike on a Mustang I built. They have a lot of fun and just hold on. I like what you did and look forward to seeing your next project.
