Slide of the Month - Jack-O-Lantern Slide

         October 2020

        Time to make: 1 hours

        Finishing: 1 Hour

        Boys Life "Slide of the Month"
        Oct. 1980, page 71

        Original design: Wayne Mason

As I understand it, Jack-o-Lanterns are based on the Irish folk tail of Stingy Jack

A quick, fun little slide made from pallet wood! I started out cutting a semi round disk and then rounding the wood into a half dome(ish). Using some deep v-cuts, I formed the sections of the pumpkin. A bunch of sanding to make it smooth and painting with hobby paint. The eyes, nose and mouth were painted with a paint pen. A couple of coats of poly finish it off.
