Made this rocking horse for my son for christmas. Followed plans from Woodsmith magazine No 65. Was a fun project, but thought I was getting in over my head when i started. Happy with the way it turned out. Made from pine and ordered the hardware from woodsmith store.

Question: is there anyway to add project pics to my profile without creating a post?

Nice work. I also built one for my grand daughter but had to make it about 2/3s the size. I like the saddle.

That’s a great plan, I’ve built two of them in the last 20 years and they both came out great.

That is one of the nicest plans (and completed project) I have seen of a rocking horse.

We raise horses and I am always critical since they never really look like a horse, but this is a good one.

Well done!!

It looks great and sturdy. Great design and very well executed. I’m sure your son will enjoy it for many years. Great job!

Have your say...
