This is an old fashion wooden toy that I have made many copies of over the last 20 years.

(I got the plans from Meisel a long time ago)

This latest build was a last minute effort and request from my wife.
This was to be a present for our cousins little boy.
The plans call for 4 figures. Santa, Fireman, Rudolph, & and Elf. Due to the lack of time I only made 3. Santa, a Fireman, and a custom piece that was meant to resemble the little fella’s dad who is a professional home re-modeler.

This piece is made from Red Oak & Walnut and the figures are from 1/4” Poplar. I had hoped to have them painted by an artist friend of mine but there just wasn’t time so I took that on myself.
I am a lousy painter at best! :)

The little boy played with it the whole time we were there (Christmas Day) so I will call this a success.

Thanks for looking

I bought the plans from MeiselHardwareSpecialties about 22 years ago. You might try Google and see if they still have them.

Thank you for the kind comments.
