Brother for Brother Merferd
"As people have asked how much the Merferds Were in the past I would say$500-$600 because I just didn’t have time to make them from beginning to end, and take care of my tree customers at the same time. I have a team now, and we want every fan who wants one to be able to afford one.
-- Phil Berwick
EACH UNIQUE MERFERD IS HAND CRAFTED BY PHIL and his Apprentices in the Merferd Making, Nehemiah and Christopher.
Phil makes the templates and the young men cut them out. They are then saturated with linseed oil front and back. Phil uses stain, paint, and spray paint to lay the color and unique personality of each Merferd down. The Merf is then handed back over to the team who applies marine urethane on the front painted side and also the back.
We prefer our fans buy at least TWO because of the meaning of the series, and motto of the Missouri state flag that helped to influence this particular Merf making movement; " United We Stand, Divided We Fall."
Each piece is signed and dated, with a special message on the back. There will be instructions as to how the Merferd can be preserved for years to come.
Rope and installation are extra. If you need rope, please contact Phil to make arrangements.
One Merferd will work on your fence or tree, but wouldn't you like to see at least two or three climbing together!
