Side of the Month Extra - (Carve a face) 70's Scout

March 2018

Time to make: 3 hours

Design Bill Macfarlane

Original concept: Bill Burch

So while I was carving the Bill Burch slide of the month I got an idea. I was a Scout back in the 70's and I thought what if I did a Scout of that era. Complete with the red beret and sunglasses, it is what I might have been wearing at a Camproee or Summer Camp.

First I sketched out the basic design and with another a block of maple, I cut out the profile of the slide. Taking what I learned from the original care-a-face slide I did, the details like the chin turned out much better than the first. I finished the slide up with hobby paint and gave it a couple of coats of poly.
