Slide of the Month-Troop Number

July 2024

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: 1 hour
Boy's Life Dec. 1985,  p. 53 
Original design:  Jeff Springer

It's July and the excitement of summer camp looms. There is nothing like being with your troop at Summer Camp! No matter if you are a Scout participating in first year rank advancement, Merit Badges, or extra activities (shooting sports, waterfront, climbing, handicrafts, or the trading post) or an Adult watching the pride of accomplishment each Scout feels there. (Oh course Scoutmaster nap time is a definite plus too!) 

Carved from a 1.25 dowel, our troop number was carved before drilling a 3/4 inch hole down the center of the dowel. The background was painted with hobby paints and the slide was finished with a coat of shellac.
