Carved Bear Benches

I met a customer at an event I carved at and he took me to see his log cabin after the show. He had beautifully carved benches and various carvings in the structural posts inside. They were carved by one of the best wood carvers in the industry named Jeff Samadusky. Here is a link to his site,

After a few years, the spar varnish on the outdoor pieces had turned cloudy and started to flake like usual. (This is why I don’t recommend spar varnish for outdoor carvings) It looks really nasty. So, we stripped them, repaired them, burned and refinished them with an oil based deck and fence wood preservative. They look as good as new now with easy maintenance for the future…
