I just bought that pattern. I want to make one for my first Grandson. Although, I need to wait for the purchase of a Bandsaw.

The staining on the wood is great.

I'm hoping for a great grand daughter to build one for.

I would take a 1" or 3/4" round over bit to the edges of the seat.

All and all it's a great build!

Thank you for all of the comments! Kerux2 I cut it out with a scroll saw. I went really slow through the 1.5 inch oak and had preatty good control. It handled the oak fine.

Very nice. My father, who couldn't hammer a nail, had one made for my son. Yours is just as nice looking as the one from a professional woodworking shop.

My daughter just got married, and just in case, I have stored away a bunch of spalted maple that I got from a buddy who owns a sawmill. My hope is to use it for a rocking horse that looks like a painted pony.

RIBrian thank you for the comments. Very happy to hear it looks professional. I watched my dad for years. He hand carved gunstocks from walnut trees on our farm. He would apply and hand rub 40 coats of finish. I have some of his patience but not all!
