Slide of the Month Extra: Philmont Signpost


December 2023

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour

Original design:  Bill Macfarlane

It's the end of 2023 and crews have come and gone back to their homes. So here's to the 2024 crews who are preparing to go on an adventure of a lifetime and the crews of 2025 whose excitement is beginning to build. I also raise a glass to the staff of Philmont who continue to facilitate dreams and experiences for so many. May the signpost help you find your path on your journey.

The base of the signpost is carved from pallet pine and the post is a wooden dowel both painted with hobby paints. The signs are made from popsicle sticks and coated with shellac. The lettering is done with waterslide paper and a couple of coats of poly finish it off. I couldn't resist adding Earth to the sign post and Tsatsawassa, NY - well why not.
