Slide of the Month Extra-Philturn Chuckwagon


November 2021

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont Millennium 1  / Bill Macfarlane


The Philmont Millennium 1 site have several photos of the early days when Philmont was called Philturn Rocky Mountain Scout Camp and this is my interpretation of the chuckwagon. I found myself wondering if settlers celebrated Thanksgiving on the trail.

Carved from Southern (pallet) pine the slide is one of several levels and for some reason at the time, hard for me to visualize. Painted with hobby paints, lettered with waterslide paper, and finished with a couple coats of poly.
