Slide of the Month Extra - Phillmont zia

May 2020

Time to make: 2  hours

Finishing: 1.5 hour

Original design: Philmont\Bill Macfarlane

OK, I'm running a bit behind in my posts but there has been a whirlwind of change going on ...

Our crews are all holding our breaths for the June 1st announcement.  What will it mean for us? Are we still going? Will our treks be different? Will crew size change? Will we be wearing mask and sleeping in tents by ourselves? Will we get in one last training in before we hit the trail? So many questions and the only thing we can do is to keep preparing as individuals. 

I found this design and thought it would make a great slide especially with a different background. Carved from pallet wood (southern pine) it has a couple of interesting features. The letters are raised with the exception of the Zita O which is recessed. The letters are painted with hobby paints and some golden shellac finishes it off.
