Slide of the Month April 2018 - Diver's Helmet

April 2018

Time to carve: 2 hours

Finishing: 1.5 hour

Boy's Life July, 1976

Design: Wayne Mason

An interesting idea, weigh down a person with a big metal helmet while pumping air down to them. There is pretty good video of an old diving suit out on you tube.

Carved out of Poplar and the grate is made out of regular paper staples. I also used some small nuts super glued to the carving. Its painted with black, rose brass and yellow brass metallic hobby paint
