Boy Scout Neckerchief Slide – How To Carve One

                   Arrowhead Neckerchief Slide
With these two videos I’ll show you how you can carve a neckerchief slide that will put you on your way to getting that Woodcarving Merit Badge.   You might need a little help from your Dad or your Merit Badge Counselor to get started but the carving involved is pretty simple.  Just make sure you follow the safety rules explained in the first video.  Doing that will save your fingers and keep the project fun.
                     Good Luck!


  1. I don’t think I can say that I’ve ever had a preconceived notion of what an undertake should look like. However, if I did, that little fella sure could fit the bill for me. Another good one Lynn -


  2. Hey Lynn,

    I am sure that any boy scout who finds his way to your blog will be thrilled with the neckerchief slide. It is a very nice slide and an easy to understand and follow along presentation.

    Your production assistant is about due a raise! HaHa...

    You guys are an inspiration! God bless.

    Keep carvin',

    OBTW - I have completed another shield. Hope to get it on the WCI soon. That undertaker looks a little green around the gills... Sorta resembles the grinch. I like him.

  3. Thanks Mr. Doughty. It sure was nice of you to post these videos. But my dad’s not going to be able to help me because he died 11 years ago, when I was 52 years old. And as for my merit badge counselor, I think they disbanded my Boy Scout troop at least 40 years ago. But golly, now at least I know how to make a slide in case there are still any organizations I can join at my age that wear neckerchiefs. And to all of you who are still working on your merit badges, good luck.

  4. I have three boys in Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts and they have all been asking me if I would help them to carve a neckerchief slide. Your timing couldn't have been more perfect. Thanks so much for your inspiring ideas.
