Free Rocking Horse Plans

A beginner will find it easy to master the art of making a splendid rocking horse from any one of these popular free rocking horse plans.

A rocking horse is not a substitute for a real horse, but for a little boy or girl, it has to be the best present ever. Especially if it has been made by you.

One of the best things about a project like this is that you can make it with common tools using project timber, unlike many other woodworking projects which require expensive machinery. Table saws are very popular among woodworkers, but not everyone has the space for one.

You don't have to be a skilled woodworker to make a rocking horse. It is the kind of project which invariably succeeds, given an enthusiastic and persistent approach.

The simple designs will appeal to woodworkers of all skill levels. Even experienced woodworkers will find plenty of opportunity for exercising their skills.

Many rocking horses are made by people with very little experience, so even if you doubt that you can do it, I encourage you to give it a go. There will always be somebody out there to help if you need it.

Most people make rocking horses because it's something they really enjoy doing for their family or friends. What if there was a way to earn an income by sharing your passion?
