I just finished two rocking horses and two rocking planes that I hope to sell for Christmas. The two planes are made of red oak. One is finished with Danish oil, the other with shellac. One horse is made of red oak with magnolia trim, and finished with Danish oil. The other is made from spalted cherry with magnolia trim. It is finished with two coats of Bulls eye Seal Coat and three coats of Target EM 6000 waterborne lacquer. The rockers are laminated 5/16” x 1.5 ” strips.
Thanks for looking,
Herbert Wallace

Great job on the rockers. I’m sure they will make some little ones happy.

Are the planes your design?

Nice work Herb,
I would really like some details on how to build the airplane rockers. You have really come up with something there and I have a great nephew who is just right for one. Would you be willing to share your measurements and building techniques on the plane? I have to get started on my rocker projects for this year.
