    I always wanted to see how small I could make the reindeer.
    I should have used cherry as the wood I used is too fuzzy.
    The biggest is 5 1/2 , then 3 1/2 then down to 1" and the smallest is 1/2" . for the smallest I used a Pegas 2/0 28 TPI. I am amazed that the first cut survived,

    I’ve seen demos at the woodworking shows of the deer but they never were that small. That would be a cute display for a fireplace mantle.

            I have made smaller ones, but the antlers are difficult to cut without breaking.

              BadBob, where did you get that pattern? The one with the turned head? I really like them.

                  I found these in an old scroll saw magazine a couple of years ago. Sorry, I can't tell you any better than that. It occurs to me that I should start documenting the source of my patterns.

                    I have that pattern. Have no idea where I got it from. I had to copy from a magazine as it is on blue paper. There’s also a whale on my copy. I’ll look for it. I think I know where it is.
