Our firt grandbaby was born 11/09. My wife found a picture of a rocking horse that she loved and wanted me to make it. I took the photo and drew my own pattern and made the attached horse. I really enjoyed making it. It was also hand painted. My daughter was thrilled! The balls and spindles came from Rockler as well as some tools used to make and assemble the project. You have such great products for us woodworkers!
