Fred the Reindeer Scroll Saw Pattern.

Download the Pattern Below

Everyone has heard of Rudolph. Most people can remember at least some of the other Santa reindeer. We have Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Donner, and Blitzen. Today I want to introduce you to Fred.

Fred is Rudolphs cousin from his mother's side. Fred wanted to be part of Santa's team but he could not pass the physical. You see Fred was born with one leg shorter than the others. Flying was not a problem but takeoffs and landings bumpy at best. 

Fred never made that magic trip around the world on Christmas Eve, but there is one interesting fact about him that may be even more important. Fred invented Eggnog. So the next holiday party where they serve eggnog you can share the fact that you know who invented eggnog. Your hosts will be impressed with your culinary knowledge.

Folks this is not an ad. This is information that I like to share because the people who maintain the Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts Magazine have always supported our community. Their magazine is probably the largest collection of scroll saw information and patterns available anywhere. 

If my memory is correct the first issue was the Fall of 2000. That's twenty years of a high-quality magazine that the scroll saw community can be proud of. 

A 1-year subscription includes four issues and the US price is $24.99. Canadian and international subscriptions are available for a slightly higher price.

If you would like to enjoy a magazine dedicated to your passion then give Scrollsaw Woodworking & Crafts a look.

I am ready to start taking Personalized Christmas Ornament Pattern orders.

I can do first or last names but remember that more than ten letters will be more difficult to cut.

The order form will take up to 20 names for people and 5 names for pets. If you need more than 20/5 then start a second order.
