Slide of the Month extra - Woody's Paul Bunyan


May 2023

Time to make: 3 hours

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

Not that I could have done this one but what a fun slide to create! While I have done other Paul Bunyan slides I decided to make this one because...a slide with it's tongue sticking out who could resist.

Made from basswood, I reproduced the profile on the side of the wood and cut out the profile. Using a pencil I made sure to transfer the lines to the front and other side of the wood. I roughed out the slide and left it in a chip style. While the photo does not show it well, the beard was made using several various cuts. I painted it with hobby paints and sealed it with a couple coats of poly.
