DIY ROCKING HORSE
DIY ROCKING HORSE

HEY MAKERS, ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?!?

I SURPRISED MY DAUGHTER ON HER BIRTHDAY BY MAKING AN AWESOME ROCKING HORSE! THE START OF THIS VIDEO (ABOVE) IS JUST A SKIT TO MAKE YOU LAUGH, MY BABY GIRL IS REALLY SWEET…MOST OF THE TIME LOL. LUMBER PRICES ARE STILL HIGH IN MY AREA (POST-PANDEMIC) SO I USED SCRAP WOOD FROM THE GARAGE, HOWEVER MY ‘FRANKEN-HORSE’ MADE FROM POPLAR, CEDAR, PINE, AND OAK TURNED OUT GREAT!

THIS IS A FUN ROUTER PROJECT THAT WILL HELP BEGINNERS GET USED TO USING ROUTER TABLES, TEMPLATES, AND FLUSH TRIM BITS. I ALSO USE A TRIM ROUTER TO SHOW ANOTHER OPTION. FOR INSTANCE, YOU COULD USE A BAND SAW OR JIG SAW TO CUT AROUND TEMPLATES…THEN SIMPLY SAND AND ROUND OVER THE EDGES WITH YOUR TRIM ROUTER. THERE IS MORE THAN ONE WAY TO SKIN A CAT IN WORKING, THAT’S FOR SURE.

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN DOWNLOADING TEMPLATES FOR THIS PROJECT, SEND ME AN EMAIL AND I WILL LOOK INTO CREATING THOSE FOR FOLKS (FREE OF COURSE) WHO WANT TO MAKE A ROCKING HORSE. EMAIL MAKINGMAKERSDIY@GMAIL.COM
