I just liked the Idea of an adult size rocking horse. So I built one. He’s made from Northern White Cedar and stands about 48 inches tall.

Great job!

I built this free hand with no plans but would be glad to give pointers to anyone looking to try and build it.

Who says big kids cannot have their toys and enjoy them too. Did you alternate the grain of the boards to make the body or got lucky finding a big chunk? Just need to build a mini rocker to match.

Wonderful project, quite a few of us woodworkers are just bigger versions of fun loving kids anyway. Due to
its height from the ground, OHSA might require seat belts if it is capable of more than 25 rpm (rocks per
minute). Thank you for sharing.

Hello, could you please email me the dimensions for this so my stepdad can build this? He is a competent carpenter and can get the general idea from your pictures, but would like the dimensions to get it right. Thanks.

It’s a nice one. One good ride a day would probably relieve a lot of tension.
