Laminate
Laminate construction is a technique in making rocking horses whereby pre-cut shapes in plywood are assembled together and glued to make the body of the rocking horse. The assembled body is then sanded off ready for varnishing/painting. It is a technique that can reduce labour costs as the pre-cut sections can be cut on computer controlled machines. Plywood itself does not carve well, and so the technique leads to relatively chunky looking rocking horses. However most manufacturers who have used this technique have very cleverly used design to make up for this limitation, producing attractive rocking horses. Leading examples include Relko and Ian Armstrong.
