A Scary Bear! BOO!

I didn’t have time to make a new project for this contest.

I found this little guy rotting away in our backyard.

The poor guy lost his right paw. The ants took over, & ate too much of him.

He’s carved from an old Cottonwood tree, which isn’t too weather resistant.

Besides being a delicacy for the ants. LOL

He must be about 20 years old now. That’s kind of old for a bear.

He’s still faithfully watching over our backyard.

Barb, used to put a tassel cap, & scarf on him in the winter.

he’s “scary” cute :)
Did Barb ever put a Hallowe’en mask on it? That would be funny as well.

Thank you Dennis!

He once had a varnished finish, & later on I painted it black.

Now it has a combination of everything, plus rotting wood. LOL

I just started a new blog about this Bear on Lumberjocks.

A Chickadee family is refurbishing him.

We got some nice pictures of them.
