Free "Build an Heirloom Rocking Horse" book

Over the past few weeks I have revised and updated my free book, Build an H eirloom Rocking Horse. It describes how to build a simple, clean lined, inc redibly strong steed. New revisions mean more pictures, more color and upda ted content, though its still the same horse as before. Hopefully the chang es make the project easier for all the builders out there. Also new is a do wnloadable pdf version of the book for viewing, printing and sharing as wel l as the usual html version on my website. Many of you asked for a printed book on the workbench as you build the horse; now its much easier to print your own. Look for the download link on the Title page of the online book. Its 37 pages of step by step horse building ideas with dozens of pictures s howing each step along the way plus a bit of woodworking history and quotes about wood, craftsmanship and trees.
If you are willing would you help to make this a better book? While I have made hundreds of horses over the decades, describing the process in print i s a challenge. Please send me your ideas, questions or comments describing where my instructions are unclear to you. I will use them to make the book easier to follow. And if you have discovered other methods you favor, send them as well. I hope to never stop learning.
Feel free to share this book with anyone, in fact please do. Though protect ed by copyright it is free. I wrote the book to make it easy for anyone to give an heirloom to their child or grandchild. The techniques will be usefu l to make most any horse from any plan. My local library has dozens of plan s for rocking horses and some of my techniques can make construction strong er and easier.
