Spindle Santas


My Dad got one of these Santas in a gallery somewhere- the original was made in Sweden. I don't usually "knock off" things, but I found these guys so sweet, I had to give it a shot. Yesterday I went out and bought myself a miter saw and some spindle wood. They came out GREAT! I love them, However, it is really hard for me NOT to checker, stripe or polka dot them up. I do think the simplicity is what is so appealing. I'm a bit sore from sawing by hand, but it was worth it.
