« Part 6: Dry assembly Part 7 of Rocking Horse series Part 8: Final Assembly in Progress »

Did not get as much done as I had planned this past weekend. I work in an open garage and the 105 degree F temperatures slowed my progress.
I did pick up more walnut and made another saddle for the horse. I also rounded over all the edges with a router and cut inlays for the harness I made out of walnut scraps; had plenty. Shaping the inlay took some time and involved a block plane, rasp, chisel and finally a handy Dremel.
Down to the final steps. I will be sanding and assembling over the next week. I will have to wait for the weather to cool down some before I can apply the finish.

Great looking design, the shaping is coming along well also.

Shaping is my favorite part of building them as it gives each a personality.
