This was something else that I built for my granddaughter.

Materials used:
(1) 2×12 – (Head, Saddle, Tail and Rockers)
(1) 1×4 – (slats that atach rockers together and to legs)
(1) 2×2 – (legs)

This was really a fun project and I tried something new with the finishing of this horse. I am not sure what it is called (I am sure it has a name) but after it was assembled I took a blow torch to it and burnt all of the soft grain in the wood, then sanded it down and applied a water base stain.

I think it turned out rather nice, and the granddaughter loves it.

Pretty and hefty rocking horse that I’m sure she enjoys. Way to go Grand Pa!
