I am teaching a class on making my wooden bears at our Spring Retreat. This is a prototype I whipped up today to test if I could use wood screws and rare earth magnets rather than eye hooks and rubber bands to hold the little goobers together. It worked great - now I need to refine the shape and work on the order of operations for the class.
Wood is just scraps, pecan, African Mahogany, Santos Mahogany.
Just buffed and waxed.
