Slide of the Month - Happy hound

January  2022

Time to make: 2 hours

Boys Life "Slide of the Month"

Dec. 1987, page 73

Original design:  Bill Fleming

What makes this hound so happy - it's the New Year!  So we enter the New Year with hopes, dreams, and with any luck no issues that will prevent a Philmont Trek. 

Carved from a piece of maple, I left some areas a bit rough (chip style) for some texture and other areas are sanded smooth (like the eyes and tongue). Painted with craft paints and given a couple of coats of poly to finish it off. I kind of looks like a cartoon character (he-who-will-not-be-named because I don't want the mouse network after me). Let's just call him a name like the one time 9th planet.
