Santa-cicles are carved from short sections of basswood. Most of the carving is done with a detail knife, the finer details are done with very small chisels I bought from Bob Muhle, a model ship builder. If you click on any of these photos you really get a close-up view.

This small group of Santas is on a break from the chores they must finish before the 25th. They've been working pretty hard and look a little bewildered. The two with the sacks are in the next to the last phase of their training, "Sack Packing", the last phase is "Navigation and Reindeer Control". By the way they wish a Merry Christmas for all.
