This  Welcome Bear is carved out of pine and measures approximately 24" tall by 10" wide and weighs about 35 pounds. He's kind of a lazy fella leaning on his sign that-a-way.  He's a good lookin' , friendly and relaxed bear waiting to greet  everybody!  Notice the back of his right foot!  This bear is all carved out of one piece of wood, this sign is carved in to the piece  and is made by artist Andy Kosel, from The Country Workshop out of Red Lodge, Montana and signed with his initials. Custom orders are always welcome!

Included with each bear is a care tag giving you instructions on how to keep your bear looking as good as new!

THE BEAR IN THE MAKING: 
 

Our  bears are carved out of pine.  They are cut out with a chainsaw and then placed in a kiln to dry. Once the drying process is complete, we continue to detail them using various grinders and sanders, as well as carving knives
 

We then mix  pigment with Marine Spar Varnish to give the bear its color. After doing the detail painting on the face and paws (if needed), we then clearcoat the entire piece with the spar varnish which makes  your bear suitable for the great outdoors as well as in the house!

Most of our bears (this one too) have a relief cut up the back to help relieve any possible stress in the log as the wood expands and contracts throughout the seasons. This is a very normal occurance, and in this way most of the expansion is directed towards the cut which lessens the chance (and hopefully eliminates the chance) of cracks in undesireable places.
