The Great Pie Fight (Cannibal)

Fall 2016

Time to carve: 2 hours
Finishing: 2 hour

The same basic design as the Cannibal but I made it a clown instead. The head, arm and feet are carved from maple. The shield is a hobby plywood round and the pie tins are formed using a doming block and aluminum flashing. The whip cream, in the pie tins, is white silicon. the wooden parts were painted with craft paint and when dried the parts were glued together. I sealed it with a couple coats of poly then glued on the hair. The pies are glued to the shield using the silicon and the other is glued to the hand.


  1. I like what you have done to work with the slide structure, and eliminate the negative stereotyping present in the original slide from the 1950's. It is part of Scoutings history, and I think you have done a good job of creating a modern more inclusive slide.

    1. Thanks! I really struggled with the thoughts of doing The Cannibal and The Tribe of Slides.
