I decided to try my hand at reindeer.Pattern is from Jayman7 ,thanks.I cut 8 from pattern and changed pattern for 1,They needed a sleigh to pull,so I cobbled 1 on the band saw and scroll saw.My wife is in the process of painting and adding bells and reins to the deer.Maybe we’ll be done by Xmas .Also need a Santa.Tried carving 1 but didn’t come out to good.Thanks again Jayman7.

Very nice. Gotta put some kind of red nose on that lead deer!

2×4 is what I went with also. I may try something a little more rugged next time. Thanks Bill and Happy Holidays.

This is pretty awesome. Are you willing/able to upload some profile drawings/plans for the sleigh, both inside and outer? I would love to make one myself!

You wouldn’t have a pattern you used for the sleigh, or know where to get one, would you?

Have your say...
