I made these sleighs for a door prize for the holiday dinner tonight. I got done with 4 hours to spare.

The Blog on it’s construction and history is here.

My wife made the floral decorations for the sleighs.

The assembled sleighs.

I’ve got pieces for about 12 of them so I’ll be busy for a while.
