  1. The kitchen side chairs had to take a back burner. My granddaughter has her 1st birthday this month. My present to her is Rita – the rocking Dinosaur. The inspiration for this rocking animal was from a book authored by Jeff Miller, entitle “Children’s Furniture Projects”. I did take much latitude to designing and construction. I scanned Jeff’s drawing into a JPG formatted file and then imported into Sketchup. Using Sketchup, I drew over the imported image, created a 3D model, and resized the model to suit my needs. Flat patterns were then printed in 1:1 scale. The paper patterns were glued to clear shelving paper using 3M spray adhesive onto ¼” MDF to develop 10 individual templates. Using the templates the dinosaur body was cut-out from ½”, 3/8”, and ¼” Baltic birch plywood. The main body has 5 pieces. Total part count is 52 pieces. The rocking runners were made from eleven, per side, 0.120’”hard maple pieces. The maple was bent formed using a MDF form and UNIBOND 1 adhesive. I like to trim the runners using a tall fence on the table saw. A safe way to doom the end of the ¾” dowel used for the handle, is to use a router table set-up. Some assembly required. The different subassemblies were glued and screwed together. Shown here are the 3 different inner main body pieces. Notice that the middle pieces are hollow. Similar for the flank subassembly. Because the main construction material was plywood, I glued in hardwood dowels in each attachment point and trimmed to fit. I introduce to you, RITA! Happy, birthday girl
