Hello LumberJocks…

Made 3 of these total for my grand daughters and not making another one…wow it was a lot of work. But the smile they had on their faces when they opened it and rode it until bedtime made it all worth it.

All made from solid oak, yarn/string for mane/tail.

Thank you

-- Captain Intarsia

I made several of these that are very similar to this. I laminated 3 layers of 2×10 for the body. You are correct they are a lot of work. I donated one to the high school band when they had a craft sale. It didn’t sell because they wanted $125 for it. They raffled it at the spring concert and got well over that. BTW this was 25 years ago so the inflated dollars would be on up there. This is a great project and you did a great job.

Have your say...
