    Looks like something that will last for a long time. I had one son that loved rocking on a horse and I would hear him in the middle of the night rocking on it. Would have to get up and put him back to bed many times!!!

I sanded, and test fitted it (think design wall 3D) before I put it in my luggage to take to Singapore and put it together finally. It was fun to do and I hope she and her big sister get a lot of use from it. It will be awhile before baby is old enough to ride it, but easier (or at least less expensive) to take than to ship later.
    So nice to have good stuff that will last and last.I love it,I know the kids will also and have great fun.You did an awesome job,very handy to have a carpender in the family.LOL

    What a wonderful gift. I have a scroll saw in the shop, but I have so many quilting projects as well as other sewing stuff to do. I never can find the time to use the beasty.
