Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Baldy Mountain (Red)

  August 2021

  Time to make:        3 hours

  Finishing: 1 hour

  Original design:      Philmont /                Bill Macfarlane

Baldy Mountain, at 12,441 feet above sea level, is the tallest mountain in Philmont.  It is dotted with old gold mines and has a fantastic view.

There really is something to making slides with a scenic view of a mountain. Carved from Southern Yellow Pine (reclaimed pallet wood) and painted with hobby paints. The lettering is done with waterslide paper and the slide is finished up with a couple coats of poly.
