We created various sized-reindeer. The following dimensions are to help guide you through making a floor-sized reindeer but you can reference these & use similar proportions when making smaller versions.
• Body: 3" diameter & 14" long
• Head: 2" diameter and 8" long
• Legs: 1" diameter and 20" long
• Neck: 1.5" diameter and 6" long
For cuts in our branches under 2" in diameter we used the Dremel Saw-Max tool equipped with the SM500 Wood & Plastic Wheel. Measure & mark you cuts. Secure your log in a vice & cut along your marked line. If your log is over 3/4" in diameter, you'll need to rotate the log as you cut it. To do this, release pressure slightly so it is still secure but can be rotated. With your free hand securely holding the end of the log, turn it towards you very slowly as you cut along the marked line.
You may prefer to use your Multi-Max equipped with a Wood Flush Cutting Blade to be quick and easy way to make smaller cuts. For thicker branches, we used a hand saw & sanded out the cuts with our Multi-Max Tool.
