This is what has kept me from posting for so long. This is call the Armored Horse. The plans for it can be bought at http://www.woodcraftplans.com/osc/armored-horse-rocker-plans-p-186.html . It is forty inches to the top of the horse's head, fifty two inches long and seventeen inches wide. It is made from cottonwood, oak, and mohogany. This piece has stain and paint on it. It has so much detail that there is no way you can see it all in photos. You'd have to see it in person to really appreciate the amount of detail work on it.
If you look closely at the first photo, you may notice that the rockers are attached to a round base. That's because the rockers are just for looks. This is a piece of art, not a child's toy. It is not meant to be ridden. With the stance of the horse, only two legs actually contact the base. Because of this, it probably wouldn't support the weight of even a small child. I would strongly encourage anyone who bought this to place it where kid's wouldn't be tempted to climb onto it.
It has taken close to two weeks to complete this project. I think it is by far the most detail project I've ever done. I loved every minute of it though. Please click on the comment link below this post and let me know what you think of it.
