South Sea Island

Sometime between 2012 and 2015

Time to carve: 4 hours
Finishing: 2.5 hour

Funny story about these two slides, I carved these slides while traveling for business as my company was a "go-live" of a new system a couple of years ago. (We replaced this system last fall.) I was on hand for troubles but there really wasn't much to do for hours at a time so I carved. It took a sharp knife and lots of sanding. Also, the eyes on the second called for pearl shell but I used a couple of buttons I got at a local retailer. I sanded off the back of the buttons and glued them to the slide after I painted both slides. A couple of coats of poly finish them off.
