The bear is very nice and also a great thing to support.
I cant wait to see this, maybe you could take the time to take a few pictures of it while it is in transformation. I’m sure most of us would love to see them.
Enjoy your time carving on this piece.

I’d love to see a quick video of the grinder in action.

Best wishes for your Mrs.’ and I, too, believe that the “unknown” is just an opportunity knocking – taking you into a new project!

I do hope that your wife is OK.

You need a bandsaw. If you band saw that to the line, then temporarily re-attach the pieces, flip it 90 degrees… saw to the line again, then remove all the pieces….....sure saves a lot of time !!

That’s a wonderful idea Roman and thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately these are so large that I couldn’t begin to fit them under my bandsaw as it only has an 8” opening. That’s a great idea for smaller things though. But I’ve begun the grind and it’s coming along fine.
