Not only is the cut cool but it looks like there’s a heck of a lot of lamination involved which adds to the cool! Where did that come from? 

I made it out of thin 4/4 scraps, but I thought the scale of the little guy was too small for anything that thick.  So I ripped down anything wider than 1/2" or so and glued those all up into 3" wide blanks.  Those I then resawed into two, but the cut randomly within the width.  I ended up with a bunch of different thicknesses by the time it all went back through the planer.  So there's half as many glue ups as it looks.  The starting block was about 3-3/4" by 2-3/4" by 9" for a thickness that would have been 1-1/2" without the twist.  Haven't got any 12/4 stock around but am knee deep in scraps so the huge waste was welcome.

I'm going to glue up scraps now this looks good!. Also i swore you made the reindeer and then boiled the neck and just twisted it in a vise.

Fun fact, i believe the Caribou is the only species in the Cervidae family that females as well as males grow antlers. So #feminism it's not just males.

So what kind of wood is that ? Or is it a mixture of scraps ?

I'd put my money on cherry.

Reminds me of the time, someone got out of the car one night after being over-served to much holiday cheer and took 2 of those lit Christmas reindeers on someone’s front lawn and somehow Rudolph got his front legs up on the back of the other deer. It was a shame, those deers must of ran away the next day...............................

So is every project you make an exercise in tedious or just the ones you make videos on?

Some people have a knack for coming up with ideas for things that look complicated but are actually simple to do.  I am not one of those people :)  Though I think this guy isn't that complicated, just that he's based on something that is extremely simple so it ends up seeming complicated by comparison.
