Slide of the Month extra - Smokey the Bear

June 2021

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour 

Source : online 

Original design:  Unknown

As we move into the Summer season, I'm always reminded of Smokey the Bear's slogan "Only you can help prevent forest fires."  The story of Smokey is an interesting one, BUT beware of how you celebrate Smokey's birthday

Carved from a solid and hard chunk of maple, this slide caused me to sharpen my carving blade many times.  Lots of sanding on this slide too! Painted with hobby paints and sealed with a couple of coats of polly. All and all, I like how it turned out!
