Wildflower Carousel Horse

It is finally done. This project has been a long hard one. However, it is one that I am mighty proud of. This, I think, is the most detailed piece I have ever done. To give an idea of the amount of detail, if you'll notice the little leaves on the body of the horse, there are a total of twenty eight leaves just on the horse body, and once cut, all those leaves fit in the palm of my hand. If anyone out there would like to attempt to build one of these, it is a very challenging, but rewarding, project. You can buy the plans at .
The one I built is made of solid wood. It is mostly cottonwood with some mahogany in the accent pieces. This one is attached to a round base that prevents it from rocking. It is not to be ridden. It is simply a work of art. I could build one to be ridden, but I wouldn't suggest all the detail pieces for a riding toy. This particular one is already sold. However, if anyone wants to order one, please don't hesitate to contact me.

New Project In The Works

No, I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I did have a couple weeks of no work though due to health problems and getting my kids started in school this year. I am working on a new project though. The photo below shows a sneak peek, and the progress so far. This is going to be a long one, so be patient. This carousel horse goes on a rocker. It will have all kinds of detail work on it that will be very time consuming. If you'd like, you can take a look at what it's supposed to look like at . Of course, mine will not look exactly like that. I will surely add or delete certain details to make it more mine. If the project goes too long, I'll have to post more in progress photos.
