Slide of the Month Extra - Philmont Pueblano

 May 2021

 Time to make: 2 hours

 Finishing: 1 hour

 Original design:  Philmont / Bill Macfarlane


The Continental Tie and Lumber Company  is celebrated both Crater Lake and at Pueblano. Besides spar pole climbing, rail road tie hewing (later to be used at Metcalf Station), and Loggerball you could also try your hand at packing a burro. It is also said the evening program is not to be missed.

Carved from southern (pallet) pine, I like the feel of this slide. the axes are carved and sanded smooth while the log they sit on is rough like it had been chopped flat. The axes and bark are painted with hobby paints and the lettering is done with waterslide paper. The finish is a golden brown shellac.
