« Part 4: Rockers Cut Part 5 of Rocking Horse series Part 6: Dry assembly »

Made a little more progress this weekend. I did some shaping of the horse and worked on the taper for the legs. The plans called for inserting a wedge between the body and the legs to taper the legs out. However, since I am using 8/4 wood instead of the 3/4 the plans called for I decided to taper the leg to fit. I built a simple jig to control the taper using the router. The jig worked well and the legs are ready for their final shaping.
