Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Black Mountain (Powder Flask)


July 2022

Time to make: 1 hour

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


Black Mountain camp is the site of Samuel Matthews cabin (1897-1898) and currently is a staffed camp of living history. The staff portrays former veterans of the Civil War who came west to start a new life. Part of the camp is black powder shooting skills and this slide represents  a powder flask that might have been used by one of these veterans.

This was another easy slide to carve, from pallet pine, with nice lines. The slide is painted with hobby paints, lettered with waterslide paper, and sealed with a couple coats of poly.
