That time of year?

For a Sleigh and a reindeer?

out of 1/2" thick pallet slats for a sleigh?

just some nails, glue, and an 1/8" dowel

or maybe a scrap piece of 1×6 pine for a Reindeer?

add a red, fuzzy nose to make Rudolph.  The body stand at about 5" high, not counting the "antlers".     Antlers are stained a walnut colour.  

Add a red bow to dress him up.
