I get my inspiration and ideas from the comic strips of years gone by. Here is a caricature of Olive’s boot made out of Douglas fir. It was fun to design and as much fun to carve. Get out your old Popeye comics and enjoy the boot.
Regards to all,

Roman, the Bootman.

You pegged it right Roman. Definitely Olive Oil’s boot.
