Slide of the month Extra - Philmont Pickle

December 2021

Time to make: 1.5 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


No it's not the Christmas Pickle and there is no extra present for finding it first. This represents the infamous Philmont Pickle and the challenge is to be able to eat this spicy wonder. I've heard tales of Scouts downing the pickle and juice in record time (sometimes with  disastrous results later in the day).

A really easy slide to carve from a piece of scrap wood but the interesting part comes with the layering of hobby paints to give it some depth. (The picture doesn't do it justice!) The lettering was done with waterslide paper and a couple of coats of poly finish it off.
