After viewing Romans project that he posted today I felt I shouldn’t even post my feeble effort, even if I am rather happy how it turned out. I visited Roman this in September, he showed me how he makes his works of Art and bought his book of secrets. When I returned home I made up mind to try to make a BOOT as my first project. A simple design to start with, just making excuses with myself.
I was away from one for two months and then I have had to take a month to get every thing done before winter and clean the shop, the big lathe is now in the shop out of the weather, getting anxious to start something on it now. Only trouble is as winter refuses to start. Warm sunny day here today.
Roman has posted 100 plus of his boot projects on this site and they just keep getting more magnificent. He wants to share his method with anyone who will desire to give it a try and post our efforts. It is not all that hard, I made this one with just the basic machines I have in the shop. No power carver.. The book is great and I would recommend it all of you. Or he may be interested to post a blog.
Thanks for looking and comment appreciated. The credit goes to Roman the Bootman.
Will close with another picture with my Christmas Cactus, in memory of my mother..and also a picture of Roche de Boule mountain range. Roman asked me to include a picture of the mountain in my posts, as it brings pleasant memories back to him. He lived in the area for some time and proposed to his wife at a lake just a mile from my house.
Hagwilget Peak A number of my friends hike to the top just for fun. I moved here in 1970, Roman came that year also, maybe I should give it a try it next summer when I turn 70
Have a nice weekend Brian
