The rocking horse charity build was part of the reason I was building rocking horses. There was deadline to submit a picture by the 14th of November and I was getting short on time so I put together 1 of the rocking horses with out finishing it first so that I could get a picture submitted. When I was drilling out the counter bore holes that will be plugged to hide the screws there was some major tear out in the soft pine board. This means this horse will be painted and a 3 rocking horse will probably be made.

I am building a pair of rocking horses as part of The Wood Whisper Fall Charity Build.
There were patterns for most parts and the few parts that didn't have patterns the layout was simple.
I cut one side of the horse out and all the other pieces leaving the line and then sanded them to the line.
The second side was then cut out a little over sized and then I clamped the 2 sides together and used a flush cutting bit in the router to make the send side match the first side. The picture below was taken right before I trimmed the second side.

One of my most recent projects was to install a wood stove in my workshop. That will make it much more comfortable to work out there this winter.
Before I can do much more on any projects the shop is in need of a good cleaning and rearranging. I still plan to build a Rocking Horse for the Wood Whisper Charity Build, Dead line for that entry is Nov 14th so I have to get that done soon.
