It's been a couple of years since finishing the cradle, so it's time for a new project.  I wanted to do something fun for Claire, so I was thinking about building a rocking horse (rocking dinosaur, actually), and then Debbie requested a Toy Box.  I eventually found some plans and sent for them.  They arrived in early January, 1999.

Here's the progress report:

More to come ...

The rocking dinosaur will be a project for the next child, even though Claire would be able to use it earlier.  


(Update: six and a half years after writing that, the next child is almost six, there are no more coming, and while it would have been fun, it's just not too likely.  Ben can pick his own project for us to work on.)
