This Guy Makes Bears from Logs

Don’t know if this is a real profession but this guy makes ornamental bears at Edaville USA(a Christmas themed park).  When we went to go see the lights at the park, I noticed people walking out with these wooden bears. The bears were pretty big so it was easy to notice them so when we went to go watch this guy make them then I saw the price tag, $200. I thought and said “these bears are nice but not $200 nice”. What the hell do I know there were at least 3-4 people walking out with these bears.

Later on, thinking about it, it is a good hustle because we saw the guy start from a log to a finished bear in 2 hours (we obviously walked around in between that time). $100 per hour, is really awesome for doing something you do well and probably really like doing. Do you think when this burly dude is asked what do you do for a lively he says “I make cute wooden bears!”?

He probably does not usually sell 4 bears a day or he might. Oh, I forgot to mention when we went it was raining and kind slow and he still sold over 3 bears for $200 each. I give props to him because he makes one of a kind things that people for real buy.
