If you want to make more than one project, make templates for each part. I would suggest that you purchase 1/4" or 3/8" thick HDPE Sheets from US Plastics to make the templates.This will give the router bearings a good surface when shaping and will hold up much better than plywood. It also allows the double sided tape to come of without ruining the template surface. Make sure you read the instructions carefully because the legs are extremely difficult to taper after they are cut to shape.
Made two for gifts, am working on third. This is an heirloom quality build, and brings smiles all around. Easy to follow plans , but do copy and glue to thin board for permanent patterns.
I purchased a set of rocking horse plan several years ago. Very good plans with individual part drawings separate from the instructions. I expected these plans would be the same and they are not. The part drawings are printed on the back of the sheet so you have to cut up the instructions, make your own copies, or try and trace onto your wood. Very poor decision to do that ! And they are printed in a very light blue ink ! No help from woodcraft, they say that is how they come shipped from the vendor, very poor!
Well Written and Easy to Follow
I built this horse for my grandson's 1st B-day. I'd recommend using spray adhesive to glue plans to 1/4" hardboard, then after roughly cutting out hardboard pieces, attach them to the wood using double-sided tape. Stack legs, torso, etc... using tape, before bandsawing.
If you want to make more than one I would recomend puting plans on 1/4 ply
Can't wait to get started
I would buy this product again
I will use this to make my Grandchild a Christmas gift
