Slide of the Month Extra - Easter Island Head (Enhanced)


November 2022

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour
Boy's Life
Original design:  Bill Macfarlane

So recently I came accross a slide I was doing as an example for a zoom Wood Carving merit badge a couple of years ago. It was a Easter Island Head slide and I already have a couple of these in my collection so I thought I would modify it a bit. 

 Carved from pine it started as the basic head. To enhance the head, I first cut elongated eye slots - easy enough. Next the mouth was opened and holes cut into the ear area. Lastly, I cut what was the forhead into more of a headdress - nice! I finished it off with hobby paints and a couple of coats of poly.
