Slide of the Month - Ice cream cone

August 2021

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 1.5 hour 

Boy's Life  May 1960& p. 68

Original design:  Gary Miller

Ahhh... Summer! Hot days, blue skies and an ice cream cone in your hand. Could it get much better when you were a kid? 

Carved from maple, the cone is sanded smooth while the ice cream is chip carved and left in a rough state to get the texture right. I painted the slide with hobby paints and the details (sprinkles and patch work of the cone) with paint pens. A couple of coats of poly finish it off.
