Made from mostly shop scraps. Mostly pine, some unknown woods too.

The are about 4 ” tall-4” long and about 3-1/4 inches wide.

Pattern by T & E designs again.

I have a jig for assembling the rockers, have to make some kind of one to attach the legs with.

Everyone seems to like them. They can be tricky to get put together. Still working on ideas for a better assembly methods.

Cut on scroll saw and mistakes improved with sanders.

Those are delightful. I can see you coming with ideas for a complete zoo of rocking animals.

Nice work, a refreshing break in the monotony. I agree with BBob, they are delightful!

They are very cool looking. These should be like by many. I should try making a smaller one as a ornament for the tree.
