Slide of the Month Extra-Philmont Dean Canyon Cabin


January 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


Based on some photos I found on Philmont Millennium 1, I've created some slides that are my interpretation of them. This is Dean Canyon Cabin and while I don't know much about this building, I think it might have been one of the buildings built in 1939. Maybe the cabin withstood the test of time but if it did there is a good chance it was destroyed in ether the Ponil Complex Fire in 2002 or the UTE fire in 2018.  

Carved from Southern (pallet) pine, there is something really enjoyable to this kind of carving. Notice it is not uniform like a Lincoln log toy but that lends to what you would expect of different sized logs someone would have used to build the cabin.  Painted with hobby paints, labeled (and nicked named Dean's Cabin) using waterslide paper, and a couple coats of poly finish it off
