Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont 2016

February 2021

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


I like the compass feeling of this slide and the fact it was probably the last time our council had a successful contingent go to Philmont. (2018 - Ute fire and 2020 Covid-19)

Carved from southern (pallet) pine, it was a challenge to whittle the levels of the compass while trying to keep the segments even. I painted it with hobby paints and used waterslide paper to create the scenes in each segment. A couple of coats of poly finish it off.
