Beautiful handmade large reindeer ornament. Perfect for Christmas, and stylish enough to have on display all year round. If you want a smaller version, please take a look here.
They are made from various hardwoods, as we use offcuts from our other pieces. You will receive a random hardwood reindeer, meaning a set may have multiple woods. Current woods include utile, oak, and tulipwood (the photos show lebbeck and utile).
If you want a specific wood, or a matched set, please fill in the special request box with your order and we will do our best to meet your request: there will be a longer lead time if a particular wood is not in stock.
Available as individual reindeer, as a pair or as a mix & match family.
Approx sizes are:
- Large (Adult) reindeer – H 25cm x W 8.5cm x D 4.5cm
- Medium (Adult) reindeer – H 22cm x W 8cm x D 4cm
- Small (Child) reindeer – H 12cm x W 7cm x D 3.5cm
Whenever possible in Lifetimber products I use second life timber that has had a previous life as something else, is reclaimed or salvaged or often was waste or offcuts from another project or woodworker. Most of the wood that I use is reclaimed or offcut hardwoods that are naturally slow growing. This timber is always beautiful and often has character that means it was hard for others to use. I always work with the natural beauty of the wood, highlighting, celebrating and enhancing the natural flaws, knots and patina.
The core philosophy of Lifetimber’s process is to minimise waste: I try to make use of every ounce of wood that comes into my workshop, even the sawdust! By considering a Lifetimber product, you will be helping rescue gorgeous wood from an ignominious end.
Obviously, wood is a natural product and Lifetimber celebrates that: if you are looking for conformity, repeatability and laser cut precision then you are probably looking at the wrong product…. but you have read this far! I therefore encourage you to consider a unique Lifetimber product for all the beauty and joy that it will bring.
If you like what you see and have read, but are after a bespoke commission or customised product, then please get in contact with your requirements and I will see what I can do!
