Using the free plans from http://woodgears.ca/reindeer/plans.html I made this guy in about an hour of total time. I plan on making a bunch more to give away as Christmas gifts, this was the first one to get the technique down. Wood is from a scrap piece of 4×4 construction lumber resawed in half.
If you want a project to improve your bandsaw skills, this is a good one. I used a 1/4” raker blade, which was tough in some of the tighter turns. After finishing the first one I immediately bought a 1/8” blade, hopefully that will make the small turns easier.
