Miniature Carousel Builders Corner
This month's beautiful example of carousel art was constructed by Ken
Adams, Charter Member and former President of the Miniature Carousel
The carousel was built in the early '90's and took between four and five
months to complete. This is the third of six carousels constructed by
the builder. Before retirement, Ken was the owner of an upholstery
business. With his skills and talent, he made the vinyl burgundy and
white carousel top, as well as tops for numerous club members.
