Needed a project on this cold and dreary day. Rooting around in the garage, I found this piece of maple cut off from a walking stick in my scrap bucket. Looked at the bumped up knot, (reason it was a cut off the in scrap bucket) and saw the potential for a grizzly's hump, so I carved up this bear head. The piece was already stained in gunstock. Applied a coat of BLO to the carving & dry fit up the handle to an 1 1/8" red oak dowel. Shank needs sanding and some sort of design work.
