This little project was quite fun! The plans are in the current issue of Wood Magazine.
I didn’t follow the plans though. Just used their dimensions.
It is made with a solid Walnut base and cherry deck and canopy along with a walnut finial on top.
The music played is “Frosty the Snowman”

Enjoy, Thanks for looking!

Thanks everyone,
Greg, I used that fake tung oil by minwax 3 coats, then it had 2 light coats sprayed with that waterbased polycrylic by minwax. I love it Expensive but worthy of cost! clean-up was simple and it drys fast.
I have to spray two more coats now that it is assembled and then ill call her done!
Thanks again for the lovely wood selection! I do appreciate!

i use the polycrylic in a rattle can for scroll work, it keeps the true color of the wood and isn’t flamable. the wife likes your carrousel! painting on the snowmen looks good, I’m happy to see that you made good use of the wood.
