  2. Projects Santa from Start to Finish

    This Santa began with a sketch on a block of wood. The wood was 3 x 6 x 12 inch basswood. I next cut it out with a bandsaw. Then I started the time-consuming removal of waste wood. I didn't take photos of the santa clamped to my workbench so I could use by gouges on it. Because of...
