"Merrilegs" is sure to delight the heart of any youngster and provide a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction for the woodworker. Easy to make, this sturdy, sure-footed pony captures the spirit and beauty of an antique rocking horse. Cut the lumber to size using the provided materials list, then cut and shape the pieces using the full size (3' x 4') blueprint style, traceable patterns. The rockers are calibrated curves to give maximum action and are re-curved at the ends for safety against tipping. Overall finished dimensions: 52-1/4" long, 12" wide, by 28-1/2" high. Instructions are limited due to the intuitive nature of the rocking horse -- shop notes are provided, however, along with a full materials list, exploded assembly diagrams, and full size patterns.

    Best Rocking Horse Ever

    Made this Rocking Horse for my great grandson. This plan will yield a sturdy, durable, safe and beautiful toy that should last for generations. There is one downside. The plans state that the hardware items, i.e., D-rings and leather harness, etc. are available by calling and ordering from Woodcraft. Not so. These sundry items were difficult to find, but worth the effort.

    Great set of plans

    I will be building the horse for my children with the hopes that it will become a family heirloom. The plans look great but you need to study them in detail before you start building.
