This Santa’s Sled #2 that I made out of mahogany, I made this sled the same as the first sled only I used Mahogany instead of Red Cedar it has soft white maple for the skids, drawer pulls and walnut for the bench, it has three drawers with one hidden drawer. It measures 15” x 7 1/2 “ x 3 1/2”

This batch of Mahogany didn’t have the redness I was looking for as my previous batch of Mahogany had.

Had to flip back and look at the last one. This one looks like it has better, cleaner lines. Still amazes me how wonderful you do on these.

Randy, I love both of them. Great design. Do you cut these without sticking a pattern on your block? Just eyeball em?

Thanks Andy

I no longer use paper anymore, I’ve moved away from using it, haven’t glued paper in a good while now, all of my past several boxes have been freehand.

This box is actually longer then the first one, if you flip back to the first box and view how it sits on the skids then look at this one you’ll see the difference, the skids on both boxes are the same length.

Randy, beautiful work. I like this better than the cedar version. It seems to have a better, smoother finish. The design is slightly improved. Nice job here. What I like about your work is that it keeps getting better. You work on improvement. Thanks for taking us along on your adventure. Keep boxing and keep posting.

No pattern! Now I’m even more impressed. You have a great eye. Me, I have to have a line to follow.

That is so cool the way you take a seasonal thing like a sleigh and make it into a band saw box,. Very ingenious, Randy!!!!!!!!

Another great one! I do like this one even more. The lines really flow great and even though the Mahogany may not be a red as you would like, it sure looks good on the sleigh.

Randy you sure have more hours in the shop than I do these days…here I thought retirement would give me more time to play…I just seem to have more time for the honey do list. Great looking box….I know you aren’t using paper patterns any longer, but are you free hand drawing it on the wood first.. that is what I have been doing of late
