Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Flag

March 2020

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 2 hour

Original design: Philmont\Bill Macfarlane

Now I had not seen this flag until I went to a crew training but once I saw it I knew I had to make a slide based on the flag. I understand it not only flies over the Philmont property but in a good many councils, troops, and homes of those who have attended Philmont. 

Carved from yellow southern pine, this is a multi-level slide as once again I'm taking a 2-dimensional photo and trying to make it a bit 3-dimensional. The ribbon is the top level and the semi-circle title and Tooth of Time at the second level. the rays of the New Mexico sun logo is the third level as well as the ground at the bottom of the mountain. The bottom level is the background and the rising of the sun behind the Tooth of time. I painted the slide with hobby paints and finished it off with a couple of coats of poly.
