I find myself wanting to make a pair of wooden shoes now… I thought it was really interesting the way he clamped down the blanks for the shoes.

I’m glad you guys enjoyed the video, I was sure woodworkers would appreciate this.

Dan, I noticed the clamping method in the first part, kinda like a sideways Moxon vise. I also noted how he measured the old gentleman for his shoe size, with a stick. I guess close enough is good enough. Makes me think that sometimes I’m too obsessed with dimension down to the 32nd of an inch.

Now if I get a derby hat like the second feller. Do you think I will be able to make spoons as well as he does.
