Scrap Wood Toy Violin

I was working on another rocking horse in the shop today and my son kept picking up a horse leg and pretending it was a violin. I didn’t want the leg to get damaged, but I also wanted him to be able to “play” violin so I banged out this little toy.

He loves it — even took it to bed with him! So I thought I’d share it. (He gets the hair from me.) Click for a larger picture.

And no, I did not glue the bridge on. 🙂

      I’m sorry — I don’t have any suggestions for you. If you or any of your friends have a woodworking shop, they’re pretty easy to make from scratch, though. Good luck!

      Thanks Frankes, this inspired me to get a similar one done for my 7-year old for his birthday on May 4.
