I have often been asked how I came by the name Old Bear Woodcarving. Some may believe it's because bear are favorite subject to carve, but far from it. Actually my wonderful wife of forty two years deserves the credit for that. One day I was working on her honey do list which was half as long as my leg. All the while I was slaving away for her I was also complaining that I had a carving in the works that I would never get to. After listening to me whine long enough she finally said "well then just go carve, you old bear". So that's how, many years and carvings ago the name Old Bear Woodcarving was born.
