Horse Makeover

The Horse

I carved this horse 27 years ago as a rocking horse but with no children to ride it, it sort of just hung around my homes.  After many years and many moves it had become a little old looking so I gave it a makeover.  It is carved out of old cedar 4 X 4’s laminated together.  The saddle I made using a leather working tool kit my father left me.  He was always making wallets or belts or arrow quivers out of leather.

In the makeover I sanded the whole thing down, made some poplar embellishments to give it more of a carousel horse look, built a new stand and post out of pine, made a little “bedroll” for the back of the saddle, painted it’s toenails and finished it with high gloss polyurethane.

The tooling on the saddle is a rose theme so I bought some white wooden roses and added them to the “bedroll” by drilling through the middle and inserting the stems.

Now it will have a proud place in my living room instead of a corner of the office.

On it’s new stand, it is 42 inches tall and 38 inches long.  Click on the images for larger views.

The Two Original Flamingo Tables

After I posted about the flamingo table I built for my friend I realized that I had not writen anything or showed photos of the two original tables I built for myself.

Well here they are.  The base and big leaves are pine.  The legs, fish, frogs, flowers, grass and lily pads are poplar. The flamingos themselves and the cattails are cedar.  Built in March, 2012 while it rained here in Eugene.


Flamingo Table version 2.0

Flamingo TableAfter building myself a couple flamingo side tables, a friend asked me to build one for her mom’s birthday.  (a lover of flamingos) so here is the completed Flamingo V. 2.0

100% percent wood using pine, cedar, oak and poplar.  22 inches high.  The smaller leaves, cattails, fish and lily pad are hand carved.

I thought it turned out pretty well.
