New guy from California

Well I wanted to introduce my self. I am Larry I grew up a carpenters son and worked with power tool most of my childhood. I joined the military because I did not want to end up doing construction all my life. The problem was that I loved woodworking just not big construction. I have acquired several power tool over the years and have built several thing for my house. Here are a few pics of some of my work. I would love to here any feed back as to what I could have done to make them look even better.

Hope you enjoy

Actually the plan came from my dad years ago, so it was more templates than plans. When he built the rocking horses he used 1 x 10 and I use 2 x 12 because I get more parts out of the wider wood and with it being thicker the rocking horse last longer and does not break easy. But you can find rocking horse plans pretty much anywhere on the net.
