Slide of the Month Extra - Volunteer Vacation

December 2020

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


Calling all Philmont alums! Want to experience Philmont again while giving back? Well bucko saddle up and join the "Volunteer Vacation".  The Philmont Staff Association sponsors crews of adults for one week of service constructing trails at Philmont Scout Ranch ever year. (Virus and fires permitting)

Carved from pallet wood (southern pine) this is another patch adaption involving mutable layers. The top layer is the arrowhead followed by the outer ring and the background. The slide is painted with hobby paints and the pick and axe were painted with paint pens. (I'm not fond of the job I did on the later...). The lettering was done using waterslide paper and an ink jet printer. A couple of coats of Poly finish it off.
