    Re: Carousel Horses

    I've done a number of miniature (11-12" long) carousel horses (posted on Carvers_R_Us). I got my patterns from a book by Jerry Reinhardt - "Carving Miniature Carousel Horses - Country Fair Style". Another great reference is a book entitled "Painted Ponies - American Carousel Art". I've got this from the library a number of times and it is available on ebay. It's one of the best references on the subject that I have seen.

    What size are you carving?

    I saw the picture trail examples, but was not allowed to print them. So, I simply looked at them for a while. I'll take a look at the carousel site. Thanks very much.

    Carousel Horses

    I have a lovely friend who went out of his way to get me a nice Christmas present: a cutout for a carousel horse. Unfortunately he got a really good deal when he bought it, and it came without any directions, pictures, etc. I have never done one before and have no clue what to do. I could buy a book, but wondered if there is anyway I can get a simple line drawing that would show the jest of what I need to do. If not, I'll just wing it and see how it comes out. Thanks for any suggestions you might have.

    I wasn't sure which forum to put this in, so I simply selected this one.
