Slide of the Month Extra -Philmont Whiteman Vega (shadow)


April 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


Speaking of Whiteman Vega...

I wasn't thrilled with my last slide so when this came up in my list, I had my doubts but after painting it, I like the feel of the slide. 

Carved from southern (pallet) pine, the slide is a simple leveled one. Painting was the real challenge here as  shadowed areas of the rider subtlety defines the detail. I used hobby paints, waterslide paper for the lettering and a couple coats of poly to finish it off.
