Materials

These two projects have been designed to use 19mm (3/4") project timber that is easy to obtain from your local timber supplier and most hardware stores. Sometimes called white wood. The handle is a piece of dowel that just happens to be the same size as a broom handle.

For the eyes, you can use wiggle-eyes from your local craft or novelty store. Use ribbon or imitation leather about 10mm wide for the bridle.

Step by Step Instructions

Use the full size patterns to make templates. I find the templates useful to mark out the pattern directly onto the timber to minimise waste.

The templates are used as a guide for cutting out and then trimming with a trim bit mounted in a router.

Step 1

Photo shows how the template is used with a trim bit mounted in a router. The template is attached to the workpiece with double sided tape. 

Photo shows the component parts cut out, edges rounded over and sanded smooth, ready for assembly.

With one screw attached to allow the leg to swivel the sliding bevel is used to measure the angle. Drill a pilot hole for the second screw.

All that remains is to attach the rockers and the platform and you have a brand new rocking horse.
