Rocking Horse Woodworking

Feature Interview

Q: So what inspired you two to start Rocking Horse Woodworking?

A: We both come from a long line of woodworkers and it was always something we both had a passion for. After working as apprentices under our fathers, we decided to venture out on our own and start our own business. We believed that rocking horses could bring joy and comfort to children, so we set about designing and crafting the best possible products with only the highest quality materials.

Q: What is unique about the Rocking Horse Woodworking experience?
A: Our products have endured countless generations and stand the test of time. We put great care into making sure each piece is crafted from the highest quality materials like steel-reinforced hardwoods, hand carved details, natural wax finishes, and finished with sturdy polyurethane coating. With all these features combined, our rocking horses remain a classic piece in any home that parents can pass down through multiple generations. We also offer several customization options so customers can design their ideal rocking horse to fit their style!

Unbox A Product

When unpacking a product from Rocking Horse Woodworking, the customer should open the box and inspect contents carefully. All pieces of the product should be examined to ensure that there are no missing pieces. The customer should also check for any damages or incorrect components within the kit. After verifying that all parts are present and in good condition, the customer can assemble the product according to the included instructions. Depending on the type of product, this could involve cutting, drilling, sanding and glueing pieces of wood together. If necessary, specialized tools such as saws and clamps may be required for assembly.

Once assembled, it is important to test out any features included in the items such as mechanics or mechanisms. This helps to ensure safety and longevity of use. The customer can then add their finishing touches using various supplies such as paint or varnish to achieve their desired look.
