Slide of the Month - Seagull


November 2019

Time to make: 2 hours

Boys Life "Slide of the Month"

January 1981, page 50

Original design: Wayne Mason







I love seeing seagulls off the coast of New England but I can help thinking of this scene from Finding Nemo.  (mine, mine, mine...)

 The pier is made from a piece of ceder and the ends have been hit several times with a hammer to give it the look of being pounded into the ground. The rope is some hemp string tied in the back and held the ceder together when I was gluing them together. The body of the seagull is craved from maple and the leg is a paper clip. The seagull is painted with the hobby paint and it is finished up with a couple coats of poly.
