Slide of the Month - The Shield

July 2020

Time to make: 2 hours

Boys Life "Slide of the Month"

Original design: Jeff Springer

Happy Independence Day (or Treason day if you are in

 This is one of the slides that strike a note of summer days laying under a tree reading comic books. The first time I read Captain America, (I think it was a reprint of the origin story), the heater shield  was the type he carried  and was later change to a round shield by Jack Kirby.

Carved from maple, its an easy rounding to form the shield shape. Most of the design was done with hobby paints and the stars were done with paint pens. Finished with a couple coats of poly.
