Question Full size Carousel horse plan

Hi
It looks as if I've got a large work project on the orizon.. The project is to carve more than one Carousel horse/horse'es for a local fair ground owner; these will actually be used/riden on a fairground carousel

Dose anyone know where I can get hold of some good build an' carve a carousel hose quality plans.

Books, or stores that sell 'em

Clive

Clive, there are numerous carousel carving books out there, if I were to mention one I'm sure somebody else would say their choice would be better.Head Bange

So my contribution here would be to suggest you start with the Dentzel web site as posted below.
Carousel Animal Contruction Manual - Contents
