In addition to being a church pastor, I’ve always been an avid woodworker and carpenter. I began making custom wooden rocking horses because of my love for the process. Each horse takes about 50 hours to complete, so it is truly a work of art. I love the way the wood comes together and how stately the horses look when finished.
