no previous part Part 1 of The Rocking Alligator series Part 2: Getting Wood »

So I was nearing the end of the end of my current project, and while waiting for finish to dry, I started to get the cut list ready for the Rocking Alligator. It is my first big project that I am making on my own (in a long time) and am glad I have taken so much time to plan it out. Just trying to come up with the cut list today, I noticed several dimensions that needed tweaking. Not sure when I am going to start, maybe go get my lumber next weekend?

Looks like it will be made out of pine 1×8s and 2×6s. Most of it will be painted, though some stained. Will be approximately 16” wide and 48” long. Equal lengths of head, body, and tail. Approximately 21” tall. The top of the body will open up to allow a small interior storage space.

Can’t wait to get the dust flying.
