One of the cool things about grandchildren is getting to make toys for them.

I saw this in a book, couldn’t understand the directions, and just worked off the pictures.

I wasn’t sure about the size, dimensions or anything until I got the photo of him on it. It’s a keeper.

Pine, acrylic paints and wipe on poly.

Wow, that’s a cool horsey. With those wheels he can really get going. Nice work.
Happy trails.

Betting this gets ridden more often and for a longer time frame than a rocker. Nice job hairy.

Cute! Guessing there will be many miles of fun (no odometer on a horse though!). Fun project.

Great gift and lots of fun. Should keep the boy in a straight line since it can’t steer. Or can it?

That’s great. I couldn’t see it in the other photos. He’s so beautiful.
That ‘s the best photo. It should be added to the top.
