I carved this bear end table from a single piece of Eastern White Pine. The sculpture was almost entirely created with a chainsaw alone. For the small details, I used a few hand tools. I used a torch to burn the wood to make it dark, and finished the carving with two coats of UV resistant spar polyurethane. Chainsaw carvings are live wood that are still drying. Checking and cracking can be expected. This only adds character to this piece of art created by tools of demolition.
This bear sits flat on his bottom. The log under his bottom is for display and photo purposes only.
20 3/4” tall, 11 1/2” wide and 9 1/2” thick.
