You have built a wonderful group of toys, thanks for posting. Nice clean lines, rocking horse looks great and appears to be a project that can be done quickly.
Do you apply a finish to your projects?
Wheels - OK, that's something I have not seen - can you tell us a little about them, size, available sizes and supplier?

Thank you for the kind words gentlemen. That means a lot and the people young and old are enjoying them too. 
     The wheels are affordable castor wheels I cut out of the metal casing. Gator glued to an aluminium axle. Equivalent to about 15 US cents.

     I am aiming to go full wood axled and full bio-degradable. I am turning my own wheels now. 
Looking forward to the discussions and advice.
Have a good day.
Andre

Thank you Gary. Feel free to use my designs. I am designing new ones all the time. They are fun pieces to make and the people love them.

Have a good one.
