Seems like I only get to do one big project a year and it’s usually around Christmas. But where I usually build for others, I finally got the chance to build something for my son. He’s 20 months old and this thing is probably to big for him but he pushes it to its limits. Not as detailed as the rocking horse I built last year, but still challenging. Original plan called for all construction grade stuff. I used poplar and some really pretty black walnut and a satin poly finish. You might be able to see the color variations and quilting in the walnut in some of the pics. I even took a Dremel and cut grooves in the mushroom plus to simulate flat head screws. Thanks for looking. P.s. shipwright that bench and vises came in quite handy.

Now that looks like a fine ride. I used to have an old hard tail FLE that looked a lot like that.

Good to hear the bench is working out for you too.

Where did you get the plan,
By the way, it is looking absolutely beautyful.
