Slide of the Month Extra Extra - Philmont Gateway

November 2019

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane

The gateway is another great symbol of Philmont and one I can't wait to see. (Though I don't know if you will see my boots hanging from it.)

Carved from white oak, this is also a side with many levels. The Tooth of Time in the background and the near hills on the next level. Finishing up with the Gateway and close area on the top level. I've used craft paints for most of the slide with a green wash on the mountain.  The lettering was done with water slide paper and the slide was finished off using acrylic spray.

My only regret is not being able to create the hanging boots for the gateway.
