Peachstone Monkey

Mid Oct. 2009

Time to Carve: 10 hours
Finishing: 2 hours

The Peachstone Monkey was one of the hardest slides I had made to date. I started to make this slide using a hardwood "egg" found at Michaels. This proved to be disastrous and almost made me give up on this slide. Deciding to give it one more try, I turned again to basswood. Having to hollow out the inside of the slide from so many different angles proved to be slow going. When finished with carving and sanding, it was schellaced.
