Thread: Rocking Horse for Christmas

  1. #1

    Rocking Horse for Christmas

    This Christmas saw a lot of small projects in the shop. On December 13th, my wife said, "The little guy should have a rocking horse." After she revived me, I headed down to the shop to start the build. I chose a plan from Family Tradition Woodworking Plans and proceeded to work many late nights coming up with the little horse.

    The entire process is blogged at Mot's Blog

    There is also a photo journal of the build at my Rocking Horse Build picasaweb album.

    Here's the finished project.

    Great job on the rocker, looks great. I really like the blend of woods that you used. How tall is it to the seat?

    Hi Darren,

    The seat is 21" from the floor, and 13" from the top of the step/foot rest.

    Thanks for looking!

    Wow, that's a great piece of work, Tom. I'll bet the little guy gets a lot of miles out of it.
