You have probably either seen one of these at Woodcraft, or seen the various plans/kits at stores or online. My shop assistant (3 yo daughter) spent a lovely 10minutes on the one at our local WC, so I had no choice but to make her one.

Mostly cut via MDF templates, but require much finessing to get it to rock just right.

Hah, exact same radon I had to build a horse. We just moved from MN to CO and the woodcraft store here doesn’t have a horse and he was pretty bummed out. I’m sure your daughter will get plenty of use out of yours!

I have to make a couple of those for grandbabies. What plans did you use?
