« Part 1: Day 1 Part 2 of Rocking Horse series Part 3: First glue up »

Dimensioned the Horse Pieces to 1 3/4” today using a # 5 hand plane. Next I jointed the adjoining pieces again using my #5 plane. (Currently I only have this plane and a block plane. A jointing plane is on my wish list.) The 8/4 maple was a good workout. I finished the day drilling holes for the dowels using a doweling jig and a hand drill. Instead of the 3/8” dowell the plans called for I am using 1/2” with the larger wood I have chosen. Tomorrow I should be able to spend some time on the glue up after the weekend chores are done.
