Slide of the Month - Tomahawk

June 2024

Time to make:  3 hours

Boys Life "Slide of the Month"

Jan. 2000, page 63

Original design: Jeff Springer

As I understand it, the Tomahawk was created by Algonquians peoples long before the arrival of Europeans. Used for many everyday tasks like chopping or cutting, they were also used for hunting and as a weapon of war.

I really liked carving this out of maple as it had several challenging layers. Lot's of fun! The slide was painted with hobby paints and finished with a couple of coats of poly.
