About the Author

Margaret Spencer learnt how to use woodworking tools from her father and making patterns from her mother. She made her first rocking horse to occupy herself when her children were all at school, and established her own company making and restoring rockinghorses in 1967. She has made over five hundred horses, but has now retired, leaving her daughter to take over her family business.

Reviews

Spencer, who has retired after making approximately 500 rocking horses, offers an excellent guide that shows how to make eight different designs, ranging from a small plywood horse to much larger, more ornate styles that rival carousel horses in complexity (including a two-headed horse that accommodates two riders and reminds one of Dr. Doolittle). A section on making saddles and manes provides the finishing touches that add realism. The measurements are metric, and the source list offers only British information, but this is not a huge problem for such a great book. Combining woodworking, carving, and leather craft, this will appeal to most woodworkers. Recommended for all public libraries. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
