This adorable Grinning Welcome Moose leaning on his sign is the perfect way to greet your company whether at home or at your cabin giving it that relaxing "woodsy" feeling! It is sure to bring a smile to your face!!
He stands approximately 30" tall and is about 14-16" across the bottom and weighs about 45 pounds. His antlers come out for easy moving and when shipped will be unattached. When you receive your moose, just insert the antlers in the holes on the side of his head. The sign is carved into the piece.
THE MOOSE IN THE MAKING:
Our moose 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 moose its color. After doing the detail painting on the face and hooves (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!
All of our carvings 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.
This moose is an original design made by artist Andy Kosel, from The Country Workshop out of Red Lodge, Montana and signed with his initials.
Included with each moose is a care tag giving you instructions on how to keep your moose looking as good as new!
