When visiting my friend’s carving studio I looked into his discard bin and low and behold this colourful piece of wood caught my eye. It was small in dimensions, 4×3 x 2, and was severely checked. This was my cocobolo rescue.
I took it home and it had sat in my carving room for several months before I tackled it with one of my boot patterns. Cocobolo is not easy to work with but I pushed on and the work boot shown is the result.
My carving burrs were taxed heavily but the finish achieved was worthwhile.
