« Part 3: The Curriculum Part 4 of The great Lumberjocks shoe challenge series Part 5: Get ready, get set »

Just so I am able to know what you mean when you have a specific problem, I would ask that each of you email me an image of the shoe you will be working on – some time this week. That way I can address your questions appropriately and help you adjust from the shoe I will be working on. Please include your screen name. I will catalogue each for quick reference.

Did you also want me to PM this photo or is this sufficient?

If you could email that to my email link, that would be great, Don.

Jordan, I emailed my pic to you….hopefully it will get there ok.

I was wondering? Do we have to carve the holes in the soles and toes? LOL….or the cracks and tears in the leather…....ROFL. As I keep telling my better half when she tells me to get a new pair – these are comfortable…broken in….and still have a bit of leather left (somewhere).

Looking forward to Friday…...hope you are getting along with your dremel shoe…looking forward to the video if you can share it here.

Reg, it was received, I emailed you back – it’s just fine. Holes? Well, if you don’t follow my instructions, the whole thing might possibly look like the most worn shoe known to man!

Hi, Jordan!

I will be emailing my shoe to you soon. I have a kind of grubby one that has what I call ‘character’ that I may try. It is the one I measured for you anyway. I figure that if the model looks grubby, then the teacher won’t notice a couple slips of the Dremel (ha, ha!)

My bits shipped today and I should get them in a day or so. I got a scare because they showed the 1/4” dia. measurement on three of them meaning the diameter of the heads of the bits. I thought that I ordered the wrong ones because I thought it was the shaft measurement. I was a hair away from having to send them back (they aren’t even here yet!) and reordering the right ones and paying shipping on all of this when we discovered the measurement was for the head and not the shaft. Whew! I was relieved! I thought I would have to play catch up with everyone!

But all is well and I will get the picture of it to you soon. Thanks again for the class! This could be the start of lots of other fun things to make!

Jordan and all of you, I won’t be participating on this because I have just too much going on in my shop and at work, not to mention that my family will be on vacation in the Smoky Mountains when this will be due. However, I do wish all of you the best and hope that you all learn a lot. Jordan, perhaps if you do another one then I can participate then. Good luck to all of you on your shoes. I’ll probably be a lurker whenever I can.

Hey, no problem, I’m sure the blog will be retrievable for some time for those hobbyists who want to do something on their own time.
