I made reindeer from logs this year for fun and they turned out very cool.
the bodies are made from cedar branches.
the necks and heads are made from cherry branch,
the antlers are manzanita brush
the legs are apricot twigs.
i used 1/16" e308l tig filler rod to attach the head and neck to the body
in the body, the leg bores were drilled with a 1/4" drill bit and the legs skived to size
they were simple and fun to make.

enjoy!

Nice job Mike! Where did you get the apricot wood? A buddy of mine makes model ships and loves fruit wood for planks, etc.

Thank you very much,ACHiPo,
i have an apricot tree in my backyard, i just clipped a limb off and cut some sections from the branch
i haven't made many things from fruitwood, but i did have a chance to burn applewood for a winter.
applewood burns very nicely and doesn't leave much ash
