Slide of the Month - Turtle Shell

August 2023

Time to make: 2 hours

Boys Life "Slide of the Month"

Mar. 1987, p. 58

Original design: Bill Fleming

Warm summers, cold lakes and turtles, ah the memories of youth! There is just something about the simplicity of a turtle shell and yet each was a work of art.

Carved from maple with the design made using simple v-cuts. The slide was painted using several layers of thin hobby paint to give it a feeling of depth. It's finished off with a couple coats of poly.
