Thank you everyone for the really nice words and compliments. I really appreciate it. I am rather proud of my design and enjoy making them for the kids. i just wish there was an easier way to locate the legs to the horse body and rocker platforms. It is a pain in the bandsaw each time. I just can’t figure it out to make it easy, i.e. a locating jig or something . . .any input would be appreciated!
