  • Thank you so much for the reply, my friends will truly appreciate a knocking of heads to restore their piece – they are just beside themselves with its condition and not acting sooner.

Jon Van Zyle, Alaskan artist famous for painting images of the Iditarod and other gorgeous Alaskan wildlife, commissioned Eric to sculpt with his chainsaw a very specific bear pose. The inspiration for this cedar carving was to capture a bear just as he was beginning to rise from a crouching position to survey his world. Mr. Van Zyle was very pleased with this piece and in fact it was one of the more popular sculptures during the summer of 2009. Thank you, Jon, for commissioning such a fun piece of art.

Wood Sculpture Restoration

I ship USPS& UPS with delivery confirmation or signature confirmation. My policy is to keep my mailing costs at the rate the PO charges any of us to ship. As a seller I get a minimum discout of a few cents. Packing and shpping is time consuming, and supplies- even minimum of tape- is expensive enough that I would rather you get an item at the price it ends at and you pay just the actual mailing costs. For these Dept 56 pieces, I will be adding a surcharge to provide boxes for shipping. There also may be a temptation as a bidder to ask for a Buy IT Now on an item I have listed.

Reading your instructable, I know your commission dates back to a whopping 1910 circa. I would have done anything to work on a “piece” that old. If the wood sculptures are dried back out & not showing signs of checking, cleaned of dust the next step will be choosing a good finishing oil to restore the rich lustre & finish of the pieces. It’s best to set up a space to restore or work on your wood sculpture restoration project where you have great ventilation, room to work, good light and tools and materials close at hand. Odds are the reason your wood sculpture is checking is due to moisture. For woodcarver Ron Ramsey, a chainsaw is just one of the many tools he uses to create realistic bear sculptures.
