I finally completed my most recent project. Our close friends recently had their first child, and I promised them a horse to celebrate. I intended it to be a Christmas present, but time just got away from me. I painted the eye with craft paints, and it is painted to match the baby's eyes. The horse, mane/tail, and rockers are poplar (stained red mahogany for the body, and natural for the rest). The handle is turned maple harvested from a tree that fell during Hurricane Ike. The horse received 3 coats of polyurethane varnish with a top coat of paste wax. The rockers received 3 coats of tung oil. Thanks for looking.
