Rocking Horse Kit (No. KR56M)

Project KR56M

An Old Favorite!

One of the original "trace, cut and assemble" do-it-yourself projects created by U-Bild founder Steve Ellingson in the late 1940s, this little rocking horse is nicknamed "Slivers." His unique design, made up of just 17 pieces traced from full-size patterns, was inspired by Mrs. Ellingson's sewing patterns. Patterns made it simple for any woodworkereven beginnersto get great results. Since then, "Slivers" has become an heirloom in countless families.

U-Do Kit
Grown, Cut and Made in the USA

Now "Slivers" is available as a kit, making it possible to build this classic for well under $100. The kit includes 13 board feet of hand-selected maple, along with dowels and a U-Bild plan to show you how to "trace, cut and assemble."
