Rousing tales of the Knights of the Roundtable and Sir Lancelot inspired this all-wood, medieval armored horse design.
The project is packed with fine wood detailing including crests, banners and lions -- all of which have full size patterns. The splash of color is not created with paint but with colorful and readily available domestic and exotic hardwoods (though you could use paints).
The plan outlines instructions for building the armor-clad horse, shield, sword, battle axe and the jousting pole stand with supporting sabers on the base. The finished rocking horse is intended to be a display piece but with modifications, supervised children could ride.
Finished size is 54" to top of the pole, 40" to the top of the horse's head, and a 30" seat height. Rockers are 52" long and 17" wide.
