12 · SATURDAY, AUGUST 19, 2017 Like red wagons and Teddy bears, rocking horses have never gone out of style. In fact, this classic riding toy easily holds its own against an amazing array of electronic toys, games and gizmos. And rocking horses made by dads, grandpas and uncles are more than classics. They become family heirlooms to be ridden, enjoyed and cherished for generations to come. This do-it-yourself version makes it fun and easy to create your family’s next heirloom. This handsome and sturdy pony rocker project features a limited rocking motion, rounded edges and wooden hand grips and stirrups for safety, while a yarn mane and tail and scrapleather ears provide jaunty good looks. Simple construction techniques and full-size traceable patterns make the project simple, even for beginners. First, trace everything onto 2x12 and 1x12 lumber, cut out and sand. Next, assemble the pieces using glue, dowels and screws. Finally, apply stain, sealer or paint as preferred and attach the mane, tail and ears. The completed pony rocker measures 44 inches long by 25 inches tall. The Pony Rocker plan, No. 738, is $9.95 and includes step-by-step directions with photos, full-size traceable patterns, construction diagrams, a materials list and cutting layout and a toll-free help line for project questions. A package of four kids’ rocker plans, No. C73, is $24.95 and includes this rocking horse and another one, plus a rocking dinosaur and a rocking airplane. Please include $4 for postage and handling on all orders and allow about two weeks for delivery.
