This is a Fretwork Sleigh that I made for the Christmas craft show on Oct. 1st. As some of you may notice I posted this project before. However this one has a very interesting twist to it. When I find an interesting project I scan it into my computer for easy reference. NOw when I’m ready to do this one I printed out all of the files and started scrolling. THe bottom piece is just cut 5 inches wide and 5 1/8 inches long. However it was too big for the project. Upon close inspection and lots of measuring I discovered that I had scrolled this sleigh at 60% of it’s normal size. Well really I think it turned out better than the first and that is what a year fo making wood chips will do for a scroller.

Thanks for looking.

It’s a beautiful pattern. This sleigh would look great with carved reindeer and a Santa. Nice work.
