This is one of several rocking horses that I built. I used walnut with a fair amount of sap wood, which gave it a nice look. The straps are set in and sanded smooth. This was a project I made from plans by Woodcraft.

Nice job, Don. I made two from the same plans—one in walnut and mable, the other in cherry and maple. I found making the saddles to be the most difficult part of the job, along with getting everything to be lined up correctly for assembly. The grandchildren love them, though, so all of the work was well worthwhile.
