The Complete Rocking Horse Maker
In the Complete Rocking Horse Maker, Anthony Dew distills the knowledge gained during more than 25 years as a rocking horse designer, maker and restorer. This second edition book was updated and republished in 2021.
The book describes every aspect of rocking horse making and shows you how you can make one of these superb playthings. Projects are included to suit all levels of ability, from very simple hobby horses through to a carved carousel style horse, and includes designs for the archetypal Victorian style rocking horse in several sizes.
Anthony hopes this new book will introduce many more people to a fascinating craft, which he believes is as relevant and valuable in the 21st century as it has been in the past. Certainly there is a wonderful sense of achievement and satisfaction in seeing your children and grandchildren riding a rocking horse which you have made.
