This is the second replica toys that I designed. I don’t know what I like so much about doing these simple toys, but they are fun and I think they are kind of cute. I cut this grizzly bear out on the scroll saw and used wenge for his body. I then used the Dremel to gently shape him and give him some dimension. His wheels are made of Baltic birch plywood that I painted first black, and then dry brushed some antique gold metallic paint on them to make them look old and worn. Finally, I found these little rusty bells and threaded them onto a wire to form a collar for him. I hope you enjoy him. :)
