These are a couple of Rocking Horses that I have built.
The one on the left is from Wood Magazine’s plans.
It is made from Cherry & Maple, and the saddle is Walnut.
I built this in 2002 for my nephew’s first Christmas.
It was by far the most difficult project I had ever built.
My wife was all in favor of it and I scored a new Band saw, Planer, and Belt sander.

The Horse on the right I built for my Grandson’s first Christmas (2007).
It is made from Pine and the seat is walnut. I can’t remember where I got the plans from.
As you can see from the picture, he loved it! :)

Thanks for looking,

Nice job on both of them. I love the color of the cherry wood horse.

These look excellent, I remember my grandad making one for my brother and cousin. I think I may have to give this a go in the next couple of years for one of my grandchildren…. brilliant !!!
