« Part 5: Tapered legs Part 6 of Rocking Horse series Part 7: The details take more time. »

I had a bit of a setback this weekend. After spending about three hours shaping the saddle I came to the realization that I had lined up the front of the top profile with the back of the side profile. Hate it when that happens. Will need to pick up some more walnut next weekend. Finished shaping the legs and made the first dry assembly. Need to make some small adjustments to the feet with a block plane so that they fit flush with the cross pieces. Before taking the horse back apart I will start marking the portions I will round over. I am cutting it close for this project; only 1 week left to complete.
