Chris & Carrie

Stylised Bear

Project Owner: Stephen Rigby
Type of Wood: Pine
Finish: Sanded and finished with bee's wax
Dimensions: 85x45x70mm


As a complete beginner carving less than a year this is one I did rather naively off my own bat. Now I've read up a bit and watched Chris's excellent video's. I realised I've carved the bear legs across the grain. But I like the grain pattern on his bum and he has stout legs so I don’t think they’ll break. Now I’ve got my hands on some Alder, which should be easier to carve, I’m going to have a go at the Apple.

This project was done by a carver with less than 12 months experience.
