This is a SET OF THREE (3)  Black Post Climbing Bear Cubs that are  carved out of pine. Each cub  measures approximately 20" tall and weighs about 14 pounds.  These bears have a channel cut out of them that is 3 1/2"  (three and one half inches wide) to give them a snug fit when mounted on  your  4x4 post.  Additional sizes available, please inquire.

Each little bear has it's own personality with one looking up, one looking out and the other looking down.  The positioning of the bears is totally up to you; they can be together or apart, however you want them to be.  Each bear mounts with just one screw through through the paw, (screws not included.   They will ship separately in three boxes UPS Ground.

These bears are 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 set is a care tag giving you instructions on how to keep your bears 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  does NOT-the channel cut suffices) 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.
