Slide of the month extra - Woody's Cosmo Crow


February 2023

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Woody's Make-Your-Own

Another in the Woody's series, I'm a bit baffled about the name "Cosmo" the Cosmic Crow. What makes the crow cosmic? Perhaps has something to do with a meaning of "the keepers of spiritual law". Or maybe as the messenger between the real world and spirit world.  But then again, it could but be from the cartoon series Fox and the Crow. (Heckle and Jeckle were cartoon magpies.)

Made from basswood, I reproduced the profile on the side and drilled a 3/4 in hole down the middle. Cutting out the profile was quick and, with the exception of the eyes, the rounding was easy to do. I sanding the slide and painted it with hobby paints. A couple coats of poly finished it off
