I took Blackie’s idea on his Sleigh Bandsaw box and changed it a bit. These are gifts for our kids and will be filled with Christmas candy wrapped in colored see through paper. Two of them are up on their side to show the glue up of Koa and Mango

Very nicely done—the kids will love them and later treasure their dad’s work.

Thanks Guys. I think Blackie did a much better job of making them into bandsaw boxes, but my kids already have a couple boxes each, so I thought something they could set on the dinning room table during the Holidays would look nice.

I like it a lot. Too bad the kids won’t appreciate the sleigh as much as the candy. Nice work.

Thanks for the tip of the hat Larry :) your sleigh looks great, looks like you did the skids on a scroll saw?

This is a great gift idea, thank you for sharing it! I’m going to make something similar and team it with a reindeer version of superdave002’s candy dispenser (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27116) for a great Christmas gift! I can’t wait to start.

something like this would go great with the compound cut reindeer I make on my scroll saw. I love the shape and colors you chose for your project.

Hello Larry! These are really great! (& the views from you new home aren’t bad either!) I may be taking a page from your (& Blackie’s) book on this one. Thanks!
