Side of the Month Extra - Woody's American Eagle


March 2023

Time to make: 3.25 hours

Finishing: 1 hour
Original design:  Woody's Make-Your-Own

I also tried this Woody's Slide in another summer at Scout camp with disastrous results. (Sigh) The interesting part was finding myself at the hospital for a carving accident that resulted in stitches. No it wasn't me but one of the other Scouts in our troop who cut his thigh with one of those really sharp carving knives. I was there for moral support as his Senior Patrol Leader. 

Carved from bass wood, there were parts of this slide that went quickly and the wings took time to carve. Lots of v-cuts in the wings. Painted with hobby paints and sealed with a couple coats of poly.
