Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Siliver Dollar

January 2020

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane

Loosely based on the Silver Dollar ("P" or "Dollar" if you prefer) patch, this patch and the segments ringing the patch (NOT SHOWN HERE) were the crowning gems of Scouts attending Philmont from 1942 to 1956. There was an interesting article in the Nov/Dec 2010 issue of Scouter magazine, page 14) about this patch.

Carved from southern yellow pine, this slide is carved in layers with the P being the top level and followed by the Tooth of Time and the other layers. I painted it with hobby paints and lettered the outside ring using water slide paper. A couple coats of poly finish it off.
