Mid Dec. 2009, Early Jan. 2010

Time to carve: 1.5

Finishing: 2.5

I must admit that I really didn't like this slide when I started it and that is why I let it sit for several weeks before I finished the slide. Carved from pine with glued toothpicks forming the poles of the tepee, I gave it a base coat of white paint and let it dry. When I came back to it the next day, I was really unimpressed. I set it aside disappointed in the slide and went on to another slide. Early in January, I had a couple of slides ready for painting and decided to finish this one off if for nothing else but to say I finished the slide. Once I started painting the details, I began to see the beauty of this slide.
