My carousel horse

My husband just finished this. There is no stain, it's all natural hardwoods. He's getting pretty good at it. I love this one. It complements the actual carousel that he made for me a few years ago.

It's lovely!

He does nice work:)

Thanks, I lucked out when I found him. He is very talented with woodworking, but he can also fix anything and he can do my hair, he is also a cosmetologist/instructor. I always tease him that he is the only man I know that can wear a tool belt with a hammer & drill on one side and a blowdryer & scissors on the other side! When I met him he did finish carpentry. Then he checked out a beauty school for our daughter & decided he could do that. "It's all the same," he said. As it turned out it pretty much is all the same... angles and color. He's a certified master colorist (hair color) but he so far has been able to match any stain old or new.


Those skills would make a good hairdresser. Attention to detail.

Too bad they don't all know that


What species of wood did he use for this project?

These are the woods he used & where they come from: Wenge, Congo Africa, Purple Heart, Brazil S.A., White Birch, New England U.S.A., Black Walnut, Ontario Canada, Black Cherry, New York U.S.A., Padauk, Myanmar, Asia, Canarywood, Panama S.A., Aspen, Great Lakes, U.S.A.

That's awesome how he"paints" with the wood.

Thank you!

He is SO extremely talented. and Yes, Lucky you. does he do your hair color? I'd love to see the carousel he built for you!

Thank you! The horses are ceramics that he painted, the top & bottom are Padauk that he turned on a lathe & then did an inlay around the base. The poles are brass.


A man of many talents!
