Slide of the Month Extra: Philmont 2022


July 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 2 hours

Original design:  Bill Macfarlane

Day 1 and we are arriving at Philmont Scout Ranch. So much to do today getting ready for us setting out on our trek. The slide today is the buffalo's head which is the symbol of Philmont 2022.

Carved from a piece of red maple and the horns are made from plastic. I used a wood burner to make the hairs on the head and then stained the head a dark brown. I painted the horns black and drilled a couple of holes to glue the horns in place. The nose and beard is also painted black. The eyes were done with paint pens. Though hard to see, the lettering is done with waterslide paper and a couple of coats of poly finish it off.
