Here are the reindeer I built for Christmas presents. Fun build which allowed me to use almost all my tools. The third picture shows the evolution, even if there doesn’t seem to be any.

The story goes, that 25 years ago my father in law gave us one that he had built (the first one in the picture) now that I have a nice functioning woodshop I decided to build some as gifts. The second was the first one I built as a prototype. This one has become my gift to my wife. The last one shows an example of the remainder that I built en masse. The final pic shows the scarf which is new to the idea.

I was asked if I had a pattern to share…after procrastinating way too long, and having some technical difficulties, I was finally able to get it done. This is a JPG of them, but I also have it in PDF form which I would be happy to send to anyone who would like it that way.
