I'm trying to make the riding biplane rocking "horse" from the Jan/Feb
issue (Vol 18 issue 1) of Woodworkers Journal. Everything is going well
up to building the rockers. Instructions and the layout grid specify
cutting the from an 8' long 2X8. The grid layout says the lines for
the pattern should be 2" apart. This works fine for the length (48
squares to = 8'), but the width is a bit over 5 squares which would
indicate a width in excess of even a 2X10.
My first thought was to cut the from a 2X12, but that leaves each rocker
about 57" long, well out of proportion with the rest of the project.
If I use a 1 1/2" grid, I get about the correct width and the lenght
seems about right, but the layout would be wrong on an 8' board.
Very ofter, magazines print corrections in following issues, but I don't
have the next few issues.
Does anyone happen to have Vol 18 issue 2 or 3 that might have the
corrections noted? I'd appreciate any help.
