Antique Grizzly Bear Pull Toy Replica

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. :)

Sheila
I love the style and finish of your woodwork/art. You are very good at it. I just received a scrollsaw from a relative and have not had the chance to use it you. I bet it would make awesome inlay’s for other things.
Great Job

Thank you all very much for the nice comments! It was nice to wake up to such a positive response. I like his rustic look too. He was really fun to make. :)

Sheila, nicely done!

It seems you’ve captured some of that feeling of time gone by here, in a wonderful way.

I am happy that you like this little guy. I had such a fun time making him. I plan to do several more animals such as this and appreciate your encouraging comments. :)
