Last summer, my friend Sarah challenged me to make a reindeer from logs. I was not sure I could do it. More recently, my father suggested the same. I’ve had some success working with my hands this year and decided to see if I could make one. I made this from some timber that fell a while back, as opposed to fresh timber. It was what I had and made sense for a first try. I doubt it will last beyond this season, but now I know how to make them for the next time we have freshly cut trees.
