Every Christmas I get requests for these St Nick intarsias. This year I made 7 of them for people who requested them. My original is the first photo. I made it in the 90’s (I think) from a Judy Gale Roberts pattern. Since then, I’ve probably made 20-30 of them. They’re about 15 inches tall, and they look great all year ‘round. I normally avoid “assembly line” projects, but it’s Christmas and I can’t say “no” to anyone. The trio pictured are pre-varnish because I forgot to take pictures of the finished pieces…had to get them out before Christmas and forgot to snap some photos. Anyway, I hope all you LJ folks enjoyed your Christmas, and I sure hope we have a better year in ‘21.

Happy New Year!

Those are great. I like seeing the color variations you achieved in the three of them.

Nice work. I like how the grain in the pine (I’m presuming it’s pine) suggests folds in his robe/coat.
