1955 Popular Mechanics Patterncraft Santa Waving & Sleigh Woodcut

Popular Mechanics magazine November 1955 provided for readers 2 more woodcut for the handyman or handylady.

The first is a grid pattern "Patterncraft" Santa with his sack of toys and a gloved hand waving. I think this looks as nice as the Douglas Fir Santa patterns, although those are simply pasted on wood and clear coated.
Along with the waving Coca Cola-esque Santa is a blanketed Santa with a harnessed reindeer pulling the sleigh. A grid is not provided on this image, but with Photoshop it would be easy to add one. You could also project this via an inexpensive projector onto your plywood.
