Rocket Side

Mid Nov. 2009

Time to carve: 2 hours
Finishing: 2 hours

Somewhere in the back of my mind there is a special place for thoes B-movies I watched as a child. For all of you too young to have seen these make sure to rent "When Worlds Collide", "Plan 9 from Outer Space", or "Abbott and Costello Go To Mars". Well, this retro slide reminds me of thoes movies. Made from a excess  poplar cut off from a walking stick I made sometime last summer.  The center of the rocket is drilled out and the back is cut out to allow access to the center.  The fins were made seperately and then glued to the body of the rocket. The finish is chrome spray paint.
