This herd of startled reindeer came from one 2×4 that was left over. I made these to give away at Christmas to family and friends. The deer are cut out at the bandsaw as a three dimensional project. Walnut stain was used and then some garland, bow and red noses added to finish the project. Three deer make up each set.
Quick and easy project—-these things go like hot cakes!
