Not an extensive project and predominately my grandfather’s work but wanted to share just the same.
This hobby horse was made for me some 35 years ago and was just returned by my mother. As can be seen from the pictures my first dog Boots had used one of the rockers as a chew toy and the other had broken in a subsequent move.
I had originally intended to replace it entirely with a straight hardwood exterior, but upon examination I decided minus some cleaning of the dark stained oak and the replacement of the rockers now Walnut I would leave it my old rocking horse made by my Grandfather…
Was enjoyable to restore the work which he had done and to see it from a new viewpoint. Daughter seems to approve, and sure my grandfather would be happy that it is going to get another round of enjoyment by his great granddaughter…
