This sleepy little black bear with two of his right legs hanging down is carved out of pine and measures approximately 30" long by 12" wide and is 17" high from the top of his head to the tip of his toe. His head is turned so he's looking towards the right. He weighs approximately 37 pounds. It is designed to lay flat on the edge of a table, mantle, ledge, bench, rail or wherever you choose. You can further secure the bear by screwing it down.
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 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.
