Woodcarving & Epoxy Art

I made a careless $2000 mistake during the process of this sculpture. I carved a bear out of 8 gallons of #epoxy #resin and various wood species. I used Zebrawood, Buckeye burl, Mohogany, Cherry, Walnut and Paduak. I will also have the charcuterie/ cutting boards available for purchase on my instagram stories tab. @BMSculptures
