Coming home from work the other day I saw some wood in a back alley. Not one to pass up on a pile of wood I found this 20 inch log of aspen that was split and appeared to be well seasoned. Upon looking at it closer the inner grain was exposed showing the bifurcation of main trunk and remnants of a branch. The grain intrigued me , so I cut the blank for the boot so that the left side of the boot incorporated the crotch of the trunk and branch. You can see the grain exposed if you look at the front of the heel and go diagonally upward. What a surprise when the boot was completed! The intricacy of the grain and colour of the wood was beautifully exposed!
