ROCKING HORSE 
Bill Brun
Longwood, Fl 

Materials: Red oak; wool yarn for the mane and tail; soft leather for the ears.
Finish: Miniwax Red Oak oil based stain; four coats of Minwax Polyurethane Semi-Gloss rubbed with 0000 steel wool. 

“A business associate commissioned me to make an heirloom rocking horse for her grand daughter. There was a lot of fine-tuning in order to get the feet to mount smoothly to the base.
The main is comprised of individual strands of yarn glued into 450+ 1/8th inch holes drilled every 1/4 of an inch up the neck and head.”
