Various Santas are what I like to carve every year. Simple and cheap but always seems to impress my friends and family wanting to know. How did you make that?
The house’s are simple to make. For the primitive style of decor these seem to be a big hit for gift giving.

Thanks for sharing your awesome work.

I really like the Santa’s. I’d say it’s not just your family members that are asking how you did it, but I will wager that a lot of people on this site would like to know as well. Maybe a blog on carving a Santa?

You did a good job on those Santas. Good work.
