    Who did the work?
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    My idea, picked out my wood, had my trim guy put it together, (did in a afternoon) he took to my painters shop they did the 3 spray layers and I picked up 3 days later. I took to glass shop, they cut and sanded the 5 pieces, we brought all of it home and my wife and I glued the glass and put together the base, sand rocks etc. I thought about adding a blacktail antler to hold the jaws open some but I left it closed for now.
    Maybe overkill, but I don't care, I absolutely think those bears are so majestic and this is just what I wanted to do.
