Rocking Horse plans

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to ask, but the wife wants me to make a Rocking Horse for her 1 year old niece.
I have looked on line for full size plans, but can't seem to find any.
Any suggestions?
Thank you.

Assuming the plan isn't too complicated, you could probably get away with one of the following in fairly short time:

1. At one time I remember there is a drafting/art tool that allows you to trace an image on one end and it transfers the image to another paper in a larger size. Sorry, but I don't know what it's called. Unfortunately, quick searches only pull up resizing on computer drawing applications. Sign of the times.

2. If you have access to one, you could use an overhead projector to shine the original plan on a wall, and trace the projection in the size you want.

3. Print a design on 1/4" grid paper. Take a larger sheet of blank paper, and draw a grid on it, dimensioned up to the size you want. Then redraw the design.

Ah ... look up "scaling pantograph". That's the transfer tool I was thinking of.

That would be great. Cute horse, I think she will love it. She also said I have a 1 month timeline.


Thank you.

Rocking horse is coming along. I am having problems with my jig saw. It's a Ryobi and can't get the thing to cut at 90deg. Never had that issue with my Craftsman scroll saw.
The gauge that shows 45 to 90deg is located where you cant see it.



The battle continues.
