I created this bolo slide to commemorate the 100th anniversary of New Mexico's admission to the Union. (It's called the "Land of Enchantment" for good reason!) The slide is fashioned from two pieces of oak, with the base being shaped on my mini-lathe, then painted with turquoise, red, yellow, and antique copper acrylics. I scroll-sawed the second piece into the outline of New Mexico and applied yellow acrylic with a red oil-based Zia symbol to honor the New Mexico State Flag. The pieces were then joined with strong epoxy resin. I then added my Saguaro Junction brand, etc, to the reverse and sealed the work with 3 coats of gloss polyurethane. To this, I attached the brass disc-type back, also with epoxy resin. This slide is designed to be easily snapped on or off of nearly any bolo cord, but of course, I would recommend either the turquoise or scarlet cord (or both) you will find elsewhere in this shop!
