Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont T-Rex Track

  October 2021

  Time to make: 3 hours

  Finishing: 1 hour

  Original design: Philmont / Bill Macfarlane

In 1983, American geologist Charles Pillmore found the first recorded T-Rex foot print at Philmont Scout Ranch. A second and partial third foot print was also found Philmont. While many knew Philmont Scout Ranch was rich in history, it seems more fantastic discoveries are yet to come!

Carved from maple, it was engaging project especially since I don't much about dinosaurs. This is another patch to slide creation using different levels. While the T-Rex is sanded smooth, I left the rocks behind it in a chip style to give the  rock face some texture. I painted the slide with hobby paints and sealed it with a couple coats of poly. The lettering was done with waterslide paper.
