Project by Roman - THE BOOTMAN posted 04-03-2015 08:08 PM 1169 views 1 time favorited 10 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This boot was made for those who like to boogie and jive! This boot is ready for ‘toe-tappin, shakin, an rollin’. Yawza yawza make it move!!!

PNG Walnut, ie Papua New Guinea Walnut, a turning blank I picked up at our local tool store, KMS Tools. After the boot blank was established things just sort of evolved and the detailing, texturing and painting produced this sexy devil above.
Enjoy! Now put a fresh set of batteries into your pace-maker and take your honey out for some wild jiving!!

Beautiful piece of work. The texturing is spot-on and the “thread” marks are top-notch. This is a true carving treasure piece.
