Rocking horse I made for my friends’ children. I used a Rockler plan with minimal modifications. I liked the look of a painted horse on a stained base, for the contrast. The base and saddle are oak, stained with Sedona Red.

Thanks for showing.
-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Beautiful rocking horse. What finished it? I think plugs on the seat will prevent child, it will be better for child to clean the seat.

Thanks, folks! It was fun. Edward, I sealed the whole thing (before the yarn!) with Minwax Polycrylic. I agree, also, that the seat would have been better with plugs than mushroom caps. By the time my little brain had arrived at that conclusion, the caps were glued.

G’day Kevin,Top marks for a job well done.I like the design of this rocker as it’ll be hard to tip over, though I’m sure some will try by lots of hard riding.
