I cut these a few days ago just to see if I could do it. The large
Reindeer was cut from a piece of 2x8 yellow pine approximately
.2x1-1/2 inches. The smaller reindeer is cut from 3/4 inch oak.
I forgot to allow for the tape. When you cut these you need to tape some of the pieces back on. At one point this made it too thick to fit under the lowest part of the arm on my scroll saw. Duh! Too late and then back
legs are a little off.
I cut both reindeer with a #5 skip tooth blade. There are a couple of burned spots on the pine deer because the blade was getting dull. Next time I'll change blades about halfway through.
