I made two batches of Christmas Santa Sleds with Reindeer…

Had to wait until after Christmas as I’d entered them in a woodwork competition; came third of three entries.

One was a prize in the local community club raffle,

Four have been given as gifts,

And on was kept..

All are Aussie hardwoods..

The Reindeer at all Red Gum..

Three Sled’s are Jarrah and Red Gum,

Three Sled’s are Karri and red Gum…

The Sled is approx 12” long 7” high and 6” wide with 3-4 clear lacquer finish…

Nice job crowie... What’s with the 12 rabbit ears long… Tape measure on strike? A can of VB in one of the sleds would have given a perspective of size.

Great job, but I thought Santa used White Kangaroos in Australia because the reindeer couldn’t take the heat. LOL (Of course an old song said Santa used Zebras below the equator – Zebra wood anyone?) Thanks for posting and Happy New Year!
