Great one! :2tsup:
I recall a similar one using a scroll saw to make a smaller reindeer. The design was published on the web somewhere. It took me about 10 minutes per reindeer, but the guy who produced the design says he can make them in (something like) 10 seconds each!

Cant believe he still has all fingers still attached?

To be fair, I did see the guy take most of the proper safety precautions and the bandsaw can be a very safe tool. I still treat mine with great respect and use push sticks when my hands are in front of the blade.

The beauty of a band saw is that the force is downwards against the table. As long as the work is sitting on the tables, nothing untoward should happen - but watch for your fingers!
Band saw become dangerous when the work is held up off the table. Tage Frid was famous for cutting his chairs out 'mid air' on a band saw, but he admits that he has broken his hand several times doing so. :oo:

Constantly amazed at how some peoples brains work. I couldn't imagine being able to work something like that out.

Sculpture of all types are like that - I have friend who does stone and timber sculptures and she quotes the comment attributed to Michelangelo when asked how he was able to create one of his sculptures of a horse: "I simply remove everything that does not look like a horse!". She says that's sort of what she does, but reckons it's easier and likens it to simply a series of drafts from crude shape to final form. I've tried a bit and my final form rarely looks like what my mind imagined it would become! Whereas I can imagine a built form in full 3D and highly detailed and then construct it from scratch - usually it turns out how I imagined it to be (at least that's what I tell people . . . :wink:)

Impressive. And no lines to follow either.
