Slide of the Month - Liberty Bell

July 2018

Time to make: 4 hours

Boys Life "Slide of the Month"

July 1999, page 50

Original design: Will Scarlet

"Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof" is the inscription on the Liberty Bell. And you can find more information on the Liberty Bell at the Nation Park System's web site here or listen to the podcast. Also what to hear what they think the bell sounded like before it cracked (base on computer models)?

I really like this one! Carved from maple this took a long time to carve and even when I was done carving I still felt like I could have done more. I wasn't really sure until I applied some Early American stain to the slide and WOW the feel of the bell came through. I attached a wooden loop and finished it off with a couple of coats of Poly.
