This boot came from an end cut of a birch log that was slated for the dumpster. It was severely checked but I could not let it go without trying to make it into a reasonable sculpture and let it grace someone’s mantle. With it’s upturned toe cap I called it “PUG”.
Birch (bereza) is a nice wood to carve and it finishes well. After sanding I applied a product from Germany, registered trademark OSMO, polyx-oil, clear. This is an organic compound and feels like soft silk when applied to wood. You just want to keep on touching the boot and fondle it!
This boot was made for Sasha so that he could dance the night away with his beautiful girl. I can hear him stepping it out now! Go for it, Sasha!!!! YAAA CHA CHA!!!
