Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Buffalo

November 2020

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


When I've thought about Philmont, I never thought there were buffalo there but I was wrong. It turn out there is a herd of about 150+. When I was younger, the American buffalo were an endangered species, but due to the efforts of many, it is now considered  "near threatened"

Carved from southern pine (pallet wood), painted with hobby paints, and finished off with a couple coats of poly.  While I really like the slide, the pictures I took don't show the buffalo's details very well because of the dark brown color. (Sorry about that!)
