Dear Lee Valley,

  Rocking horse
   
You may be interested in my version of the rocking horse plan you sell. It's a little more three dimensional than the plan suggests.

The mane and tail are made of sheep skin, and the saddle is padded rabbit fur. The body of the horse is white pine — a one-piece board 3" thick by 32" wide that was given to me by a friend who had it hanging around in his shop for about 40 years. The rocker is black walnut from a log my dad picked up and had sawn into boards some 30 years ago. I still had some left over.

The grandkids like it a lot.

L.L.
