I hand crafted this Santa’s Sled out of red cedar, I used soft white maple for the skids, drawer pulls and walnut for the bench, it has three drawers with one hidden drawer, I left the drawers on the inside unfinished so that you can still smell the cedar, It measures 15” x 7 “ x 4”.

I was on the fence to leave the whole sled unfinished being it was cedar but decided to just leave the drawer interior in the raw, I also have a second sled on the finish bench with first coat on it only it’s is made from Mahogany, A lot of detail went into these boxes, I plan on making some Christmas trees next

Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed.

Randy, This is a great build. What a creative idea for Christmas gifts. The elves in your shop must be really hopping getting ready for Christmas. I especially like the pulls you have integrated into the sled design. Nice idea there. Looking forward to the next sled and the tree. You are really on a creative bent. One of the wood magazines should pick up on you and your ideas. Have you sent them any photos?

Big Al no I haven’t, never really thought about it, ya know these things just come to me and when I get started I never know the out come but I had a good idea this one would be a great hit, I don’t think there’s ever going to be an end, I get so much enjoyment with my accomplishments :)

Thanks for the great comments everyone.

Randy, Your designs are simply amazing! This was a great idea and your execution of the build was flawless as usual. I think you make as nice a bandsaw box as any I have ever seen and your designs make them collectable. You are taking bandsaw boxes to a whole new level.
