|Steve Coupe, a woodworker in New Zealand, who has been making wooden toys for 25 years, created this wonderful children's rocker in the shape of an X-Wing fighter, complete with an R2-D2, working for about 40 hours to complete the piece for a charity auction to benefit a children's hospital.
"The lighter and larger panels of the X-wing are Radiata pine, the golden parts are native Macrocarpa, with the darker parts made from native Rimu," Coupe told Crave.
It took a few hours each night for a couple of months for Coupe to complete the X-wing rocker. "it was about 40 hours of filling my nostrils with galactic sawdust," Coupe said.
For any fans that want to make their own X-wing rockers, Coupe has a few suggestions.
"The X-wing became very large -- and very heavy, so plan to make parts that can be dismantled for better storage and transportation," Coupe said. "With my version -- the wings bolt on and so do the rockers."
