It’s been a while (over a year) since I’ve posted any projects. Much of my time has been spent getting my new shop set up after we moved to Kansas this past summer. Unbelievably, I actually got some things done that were worth posting. This is one of the simpler ones I pulled off just before Christmas. Not a new idea for sure, but my new bandsaw (Laguna 14-12) had come in and was dying to try it out after I got it all set up. So I whipped out some of the reindeer you see here. I made all of these from some scrap cedar I had laying around and finished them with BLO.

Cool I’ve seen these done at woodworking shows with Carter cool blocks. Nice.

Those carter guys make me nervous when they fly through making those reindeer at the woodworking shows.

I made a half dozen or so of those last Christmas until I broke my blade. Fun little projects that everyone seems to like.

?Where in Kansas did you move? I’m in SW MO, about 60 miles from the SE cover of KS.

Thanks for the feedback, guys.

Burb, we moved to Hutchinson, KS, about an hour NW of Wichita. (Sorry about your broken blade.)

Ken & Steve – I don’t use Carter blocks on my band saw — it’s a Laguna with ceramic guides/blocks. Works pretty good, IMO.
