Just finished an order of 50 sets of these guys. The smallest one is cut from 2×4 stock and the two larger sizes are cut from 2×6 stock. I collect the wood from construction site cut offs. The greenery is from an old wreath, pine cones gathered from my property and purchased bells and pom poms from a craft store. I use white latex paint thinned down for the white deer set and special walnut stain for the stained deer set. These require a compound cut on the bandsaw. A great seller during Christmas time!

Awesome job. Even better when it sells!

Those look great! Wow, who bought 50 sets of them?
That sounds like a lot of band-saw time…enjoy

Good Day:

Nice job on the reindeer. I came across this pattern years ago and I have been looking to get a copy again. I was wondering if you would have an image you used to make the different reindeer.

Thanks for your time,


Have your say...
