It’s hard to imagine you could make a nicer gift for your favorite munchkin. Created by Buckley Smith (author of Moonsailors) this animated rocking dory is oozing with personality. The big sweeping sheer, traditional transom with a sculling notch, cleat handle, and wave-like rockers all combine to give you as much fun building as the kids will have playing. Three sheets of plans with full-sized patterns for all parts plus the building jig are included, as well as an option to build in lapstrake.

This isn't an "instant" process, so if we're asleep, you may need to wait for regular business hours for us to process the order. Although we are quite timely, we may not be processing on weekends & holidays.
I have limited woodworking experience and this is my first complex build. It was a huge help to order the full size plans. Excellent directions with a very small learning curve. Currently halfway through the build. I definitely recommend this.
Plans are great, but I am little confused about why there is 2 sets of cross pieces. Just trying to figure that out, when I do it will look great I am sure. Thanks
Never built any projects with these type of plans and am struggling with some aspects of understanding them
Do let us know if you have questions, perhaps we can help.
This is a great concept and a fun build. The plans, patterns, and other details are amazing. You can tell a lot of care went into the creation of these plans and you really benefit from that. There’s tons of explanations and suggestions, as well as just great drawings and a combination of fun and knowledge.
