Introduction: Ride on Carousel for My Daughter.

my daughter loves carousels, so i decided to try to build one, still working on it two years later, it is 8 ft  round and is powered by a 1hp electric motor, the horses are old spring bouncy horses that i repainted,it has three horses and three pedal cars, i will post more pictures as i continue.

I love the carousel you built. Very classy! I was going to build one myself for my kids. I have a question though. What did you use for the swivel connection, motor and gear assembly?

I am in my 50's and wouldnt mind having one. Your daughter is a very fortunate young lady to have a dad so talented. Can not wait to see your finished project with the gazebo. Are you planning on posting the detailed plans on how you constructed this. If not I would be more than willing to pay. I do alot of working for charities and local school for fund raiser. I bite my construction cost and get paid with smiles and happiness. I project was a 30 feet teddy bear. I love to build and sew. You really done a beautiful job

Been there before. My heart breaks for your little princess. That would have been a nice heirloom to pass onto your grandkids. Best of luck and stay strong. Look forward to your next project
