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!
