I'm making this for my grandson for Christmas. I had seen one for sale on line this one looks pretty close.It is made from 1 2x18 -8 foot long paint and a few wood screws                 

I used a bandsaw and other dangerous power tools be careful
I have a dust collector in my shop with or without still wear a dust mask
all ways wear eye protection

             With the one 2x12 and paint I built two of them for less than $30.00
 My grandchildren loved them

wow nice idea! always wanted to make a rocking horse for future child but found most rocking horses to be to old and a little on the creepy side. perfect modern solution with a bit of a retro look. love it!
Is there any templates for the parts or just hand drawn?

Yes this is a link to a PDF hope this helps
thanks! cant wait to build!
Looking to make one here in the Philippines.

What size wood did you use? 2x18 or 2x12?

I will probably have to use 3/4" marine plywood to make most of mine as good dimensional lumber is hard to get.

I used a 10' long 2x12 and made 2 of them out of it
I think I sent the link for the PDF right
Peace Ricky

I may have to make one too some day. Only mine will look like the Cushman 53a scooter I'm restoring. Great work!
Wow, that looks amazing! If only I was as handy as you are and had access to all that wood and tools. It's just so well done I think I'm being forced to favorite this. :P (This really deserves to be featured. C'mon, moderators, find this!)
