This is a rocking fire engine I made for my wife’s grandson’s first birthday. Her son is a volunteer firefighter and her grandson loves fire engines. This rocker has a ladder on each side, a steering wheel that turns, and a bell that rings. The idea came to me in the middle of the night one Saturday. I sat straight up in bed and said, “I know what to give Mikey for his birthday!” and then went out to the shop and got started right away. This project was a lot of fun!

looks like there is a junior fire-fighter who’s going to be having a lot of fun. That is a cool looking rocker!
