This was a sleigh that seemed difficult enough to be a challenge, yet easy enough for a beginner…..this project taught me alot….1) cutting curves neatly ( and not squaring them of can make or break a project. 2) once you start a line, dont stop. 3) patience…....

Thank you. and BTW I really like your quote ...”Mother Nature created it, I just assemble it. – It’s not ability that we often lack, but the patience to use our ability” May I borrow it?

That was my first project, also. My granddaughter picked it out of a mag. and I cut it for her for Christmas. YES, that one will teach you a lot. Keep cutting. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Very nice scrolling, first or not. One of my first SS projects was also a sleigh. I cut six sets of them with reindeer and we painted them with the grandkids and their young cousins as a Christmas workshop project. That was 9 years ago and the families still put them out at Christmas time.

It was made in 2008, and I made it from Bubinga….. the sales person at the store I bought the wood from told me that I was about “to ruin a good piece of wood on a starter project”......I got the pattern from ….. the 4 foot cathedral I’m working on now is from the same site.
