My daughter-in-law sent me a photo she had found of this ‘rocking llama’, along with a subtle hint that perhaps I would be interested in making something like it for my grand daughter. So, I decided to make one using the photo she sent. I printed the photo on paper, drew a grid on it and proceeded to scale it off full size, and build it. I managed to get it done only a week after the grand daughters birthday, but she didn’t really care!!! Made with Baltic Birch Plywood with scraps of hardwoods for the seat and handle.
Thanks for looking.

The best projects, are the ones that make the grandkids smile.
By the picture it looks like you hit the mark.

Wow! Now that’s a first for me.
By the looks of it’s rider, I would say you got it just right.
Good job grandpa!
