Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Clear Creek

  January 2022

  Time to make:         3 hours

  Finishing: 1 hour

  Original design:       Philmont /               Bill Macfarlane

Clear Creek camp is patterned after a trapper camp important in the fur trading history. It features black powder shooting, tomahawk throwing, and demonstrations of beaver trapping methods as well a great evening campfire program featuring tall tales of the fur trading days.

OK, I never thought I'd ever be carving a bear skin rug so this was a first. Maple was the only choice for it's strength. This took a sharp knife and lots of patience trying to visualize how to make this seem like a rug. Painted with hobby paints and sealed with a couple coats of poly. The lettering was done with water slide.
