HLW - HOME LIVING: WEST, Tuesday, April 7, 2009 3 HOMELIVING Save that precious old toy » ADVERTISING FEATURE When your rocking horse is a broken-down nag it's time to call the Rocking Horse Man. For young children, years of riding pleasure can continue with the restoration of that old rocking horse. The Rocking Horse Man, Warren Moore, replaces manes, tails, rejuvenates cracked and damaged timbers and fixes wobbly rocker stands. ''Like a piece of antique furniture, restoration enhances the value of these precious heirlooms,'' he said. Restoring a rocking horse will increase both the riding pleasure and the owner's investment. ''Many wooden rocking horses, some 50 to 100 years old, have stood the test of time with many families holding on to their favourite and fondest childhood memories. ''To see a child's face light up with excitement when their own lifelike pony arrives is extremely satisfying. Mr Moore also makes rocking horses and says whether it is a new or restored rocking horse the excitement is just the same. Getting rid of the old toxic paint and making them safe again is another thing that happens at the Rocking Horse Man's repair workshop. Details: the Rocking Horse Man on 9481 9504 or 0418 673347. .................................................. » ADVERTISING FEATURE Get into a scrape A tool that seems to fly under the radar but is as handy as any in the workshop is the scraper. A good scraper can be used for multiple jobs around the home. It can remove paint, glue varnish, rust from surfaces of wood, metal, glass and even concrete.
