I made this rocking horse when my first daughter was young. It turned out larger than I intended, since I didn’t use any plans, like usual. But, its fun because adults do often like to take it for a ride!

Its also made from construction lumber, and filler to fill the holes and knots. I built it when we were still in the apartment, so all I had was a jigsaw, RO sander and drum sander. Lacquer sprayed on finish. The horse’s mane is a mop head.

I sure do! The children still hop on it and go crazy. The head broke off a year or two ago, and had to get a little surgery & splint, but not much worse for the wear! :-)

Couldn’t do that if it wasn’t strong handmade craftsmanship.
That’s one of the things I love a wooden toys, easily repaired and normally the repair is heaps stronger than original.
