Made a trio of these shoe horns using kits from Craft Supplies USA. I’m keeping one and giving the rest to coworkers going through back surgeries… hopefully it will help them avoid bending over for shoes. Two are made from soft maple and jatoba, one from bajan mahogany. Finished with teak oil, shellac, and renaissance wax.

Realy classy, you’ve done good job. They are so thin, I hope they are sturdy enough.

They are a little flimsy and bend easily. Maybe next time I’ll try making a wooden horn.

Nice job Allen I like your design, I have made a few out of old Canadian maple snooker cues which is real hard timber,
What did you make the overall length?

Thanks Pete. They are about 32” long total with the horn. No bending over required (used mine this morning, seems to work well).

Nice job.
