This is a fun piece. The customer provided a picture of the front of his log home style building that has a huge exposed log truss. He said he wanted some bears on the truss. This was the design he ended up going with. A momma bear on the ground looking up at 3 cubs climbing up toward a bee hive.
Momma bear required an 8 ft. long 2.5 ft. thick log. Here it is being set up at the studio.
Here are some various images of the process making these bears.
There’s a lot of love going on around here!
OK, the bears are done and it’s time to pack them into the trailer and drive them to ND in person!
Staining the bottom with wood preservative…
Here are some shots of the 3 cubs. Each one is in a different position.
The next group of pictures will show them installed on the truss!

I told the NoDak Takle’s that they need to go see it after it gets installed! (Al, Kim, Alex, Kennedy)
Enjoy seeing all your work from first photo to the final carving. Kids and big kids are going love this.
