anyone have experience with a plan company that offers plans that are accurate? for a children's rocking horse style wooden toy for them to ride on.

Im coming out of the fog, Im off the pain killers and on the mend, hopefully can get back to the shop within a week or so.

thankyou gentlemen, while that jeep is tempting, and looks like I can handle it easily enough, that motorcycle looks like it will frustrate me but it is very cool. thanx for the help, Ill be ordering the plans shortly.

Darren was kind enough to show me and send me patterns for a motorcycle rocker
I don't have templates or Cnc so it's all old school here
I figured get the rockers made and the rest will be easy enough
Band saw blade popped yesterday so cleaned up machine and put new tires and blade today
I had an 8x11 printout then I had 1 inch graph paper and slowly drew patter enlarged
I made the bottom curve with a 3 foot bendable metal drafting ruler
Tapped in nails to hold bend like I said old school
My main goal was to get rocker to stand level and top to be level
Done today top is level to attach deck
But rocker was off a bit more than a 16th
A bit more sanding tomoorrow
I'll get to template bits and hardwoods in a few weeks
I have many small projects I want to get going and dinished
