Here's the first ever Rocking Horse I've ever made... Made from Cherry, Jitoba, and Maple.
A Christmas gift for our daughter's first Christmas....and hopefully something to be passed down over the years to younger generations :)

Let me know what you think!

Very nice work and excellent selection of woods.:eusa_clap

Can't hardly wait to see all of grain and color pop when you add the finish.

Thanks for sharing.

Now that's a gift she'll enjoy from the day she gets it, and many years later when she gives it to her first child. Be sure and take pictures of the look on her face the first time she see's it. :icon_thum

Glue and pocket screws in places where clamps were not feasible. The entire rocking part and supports are only screwed together, as is the attachment of the horse to those supports. I was thinking glue might be necessary, but the assembly is very strong with just the screws on the lower part. This was also helpful with the assembly part, not having to race with glue and hope it bonded properly.

Wow. Very nice rocking horse.

Did you work from plans? Where did you get them?
