Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many people consider the merry-go-round a simple child's diversion, but classic examples of carousel animals offer some of the most significant carving of the last century. White, a master carver whose work is featured in Applebee's restaurants worldwide, offers a fascinating history of this art form and then shows readers how to carve their own miniature or full-sized animals. Well-known styles, including Philadelphia, Coney Island, and County Fair, are described with color photos of numerous examples, both historical and by White. Also included are lists of amusement parks that own working examples of each type. Most historic carousels featured only horses, but White's modern designs boast a velociraptor, shark, hummingbird, and butterfly. His clear instructions and excellent photos take readers through design and layout, the glue-up of blocks of wood, carving, detail work, and finishing. This excellent title celebrates the history of a classic art form and does a great job of making it accessible to woodworkers of all experience levels. Recommended for most collections.

    what a great book

    when i fist read this book i was surpirsed how interesting this book was. I thought this book was going to be another one of those boring books that put you to sleep, but long behold i was reading this book day and night. I think everyone should read this book. It tells more then how to carve, but also the history.

    It's more than what it seems

    What this book is actually about is the fascinating history of the great carvers from the golden age of the carousel, circa 1870-1929. It is given from the perspective of a man who carves and manufactures carousel figures and entire carousels today. Included is the story of how the author came to do this and how he has since made more than 1,000 carousel horses for Applebee¿s Restaurants worldwide, hundreds of figures for numerous operating carousels worldwide, and his own 30-foot, 20-figure carousel, which was appraised by Guernsey¿s Auction House at $450,000 and later donated to the Patee House/Jesse James museum in St. Joseph, Missouri. The final two chapters do give detailed instructions on how to make a miniature carousel figure and a full size carousel figure, but they are not the author¿s primary focus. This book is chock full of beautiful, color photos of the author¿s extraordinary work as well as antique carousels from around the United States. It is a book that will definitely appeal to all who love carousels or art in general, not just woodcarvers. It is a great ¿coffee table book.¿
