This Santa is my version of the one of the ones featured in “Woodcarving Illustrated Holiday 07 Edition”.

He is carved from a piece of 2×4 SPF. I am guessing by the way this lumber carved it was more on the Spruce side of the Spruce/Pine/Fur continuum. He is not quite 6” tall and 3” wide.

Now we know you can get a Santa and all his reindeer out of one 2×4. Looks like the contest is getting to us already!

mrtrim: Thank you!

scott: I have no idea why every one is scared of a good ol’ construction grade 2×4. I have been working with them more than anything else. It don’t have to say Teak, Zebra, Harts, or whatever to me. It is truly amazing what one can create if they just apply them selves.

Nice little Santa Buckskin! I enjoy doing Santa carvings. There are so many things that you can do with them that no 2 are ever alike. Have you ever tried doing one from a turned blank?

Great job Buckskin. Have you had him out in the cold weather, he looks a little chilled?.

Grumpy we have had an Ice Storm starting Sunday. Now we have a big snow storm blowing in. I would say he is plenty cool.

Thanks for all the great comments. Makes me want to keep after it.

Nice job on both the carving and the Santa.

Will it fit in my stocking?

Nice job, Buck! I like his outfit, must be what he wears around his workshop the other 364 days of the year.
