Hi I designed this wood shoe last summer
As my nephew needed a fun way to learn to tie his
Shoes. It didn’t take long and he had it down
And was on his way tying his own shoes.

Great idea! Looks like this might be a good addition to someone’s craft show offerings.

Haven’t been on Lumber Jock in a while , so i am excited to hear feed back from all my lumber friends.
Yes this would be a grand thing to take to a craft show or just make one for your kids or grand kids.
I used 27 inch or 69 cm of shoe string on these.
what a fun thing to make and a fun way for kids to learn.
take care sawdust hugs to all.

Jeffrey, what a great idea! I have a lot of elementary educators in my family. Do you have a softcopy of the design? I would sure love to have it!

Pretty easy.
Trace a 5-10 year old shoe on to a thin card board or ply wood to start a pattern
Eyeball where the shoe lace holes are and use a punch and a hammer to mark
Where the holes need to be. Drill hole just big enough for pen mark for later.
Cut board just little bigger than pattern.
Traced pattern to board ,mark holes for laces with pen or punch and hammer.
Drill holes just big enough for lace to go through, same size or little bigger
Than hole in real shoe.
Cut shoe out, with a scroll saw works best. You can get one for under $ 100.
Great tool to invest in if you don’t have one. When done sanding and getting
Burrs off lace it and good to go.
I will make a pattern and send it e-mail if you still need me to.
Best wishes from Jeff.
