The rocker seesaw (teeter totter) may be used indoors or outdoors. As year-round apparatus it is a good investment in time and material to build one. It works equally well in the playroom, on the walk and on the lawn, and it is easily set up and taken down. The broad rocker base prevents the rutting of lawn. The plank is adjustable to children of different weight. This craft pattern lists the materil sizes, gives full-size patterns for the rockers and the horse heads and shows the assembly of parts and a painting pattern.
Materials List shows:
1 of 2 x 12 x 96 inch lumber
1 of 2 x 10 x 144 inches lumber
1 of 2 x 8 x 60 inches lumber
1 of 1 x 8 x 25 inches lumber
4 of 1 x 2 x 120 inches lumber
1 of 3/4 x 21 inch wood dowel

Plan Language: English, all measurements are inches/feet unless stated otherwise.
Condition of this recycled plan: Excellent (priced as marked), we hav one copy of this plan available. Plan printed on two sheets of 17 x 22 inch paper.
This is a vintage plan. We classify a plan as vintage based on two primary conditions; 1. its at least 20 years old and/or 2. the company that produced the plan is no longer in existence. Vintage plans were typically printed many years ago, thus, they may not contain the same amount of detail as found in plans produced today and they may refer to hardware and terminology not currently in use today. The copy you see here is one that we acquired through the purchase of wholesale lots of woodworking plans from individuals, estate sales or inventory buy outs of companies no longer in business. We have inspected the plan to make sure its condition is suitable for sale. The price reflects its condition. Pictures we use are either ones directly from the plan, or from images we found online. Please see the larger image slideshow to see pictures (if available) of the item you will receive. This plan may reference hardware parts that are no longer available so please be flexible in your building process. We do not have sources for out-of-date parts unless otherwise stated in the description above.
My children love this seesaw and use it a lot. Thanks for the plan.
