Pony Rocker – U-Bild Woodworking Plan No. 738 - Children's Furniture Project
Like red wagons and Teddy bears, rocking horses have never gone out of style. In fact, this classic riding toy easily holds its own against an amazing array of electronic toys, games and gizmos. And rocking horses made by dads, grandpas and uncles are more than classics. They become family heirlooms to be ridden, enjoyed and cherished for generations to come.
This do-it-yourself version makes it fun and easy to create your family’s next heirloom. This handsome and sturdy pony rocker project features a limited rocking motion, rounded edges and wooden hand grips and stirrups for safety, while a yarn mane and tail and scrap-leather ears provide jaunty good looks.
Simple construction techniques and full-size traceable patterns make the project simple, even for beginners. First, trace everything onto 2-by-12 and 1-by-12 lumber, cut out and sand. Next, assemble the pieces using glue, dowels and screws. Finally, apply stain, sealer or paint as preferred and attach the mane, tail and ears.
The completed pony rocker measures 44" length x 25" height.
