In my pile of found wood I came across this weather worn pallet skid. Dimensions of the skid 3 1/2 inches thick and 2 1/2 inches wide, not much room for a larger sized boot, plus one side was under some decay. The wood was a hardwood and has some nice grain and colour features.
When the boot was carved, several cracks were exposed and that had to be taken care of. Out came my pyrography tool and the flower child was the result!

I do admire and like your work.

The wood-burning is fantastic.
As I do a little of it too, I know the difficulty of it!
