Sure to become an instant Christmas classic, this elegant white reindeer and sleigh project can be displayed indoors or out. All three of the figures are traced from full-size patterns, making them a natural for woodworkers of any skill level–even beginners. When the holidays are over, the reindeer pull apart for easy storage inside the sleigh.
As inexpensive as it is easy, the entire project calls for just a single sheet of plywood and some white paint. To build the reindeer, simply trace the pieces onto plywood, cut everything out, sand and apply a coat of white paint. Once the pieces are dry, simply slide everything together using interlocking slots–there's no gluing or nailing required.
Like the reindeer, the sleigh is also traced onto plywood using full-size patterns, cut out, sanded and painted. Unlike the reindeer, however, the pieces are assembled with glue and nails, for stability.
The reindeer measure 30 inches tall by 24 inches long and 16 inches tall by 30 inches long, and the sleigh is 21 inches tall by 33 inches long.
The White Reindeer and Sleigh Package (No. C122) includes both plans, which feature complete step-by-step directions, full-size traceable patterns, shopping lists and cutting schedules and a toll-free help line for project questions.
