BITS and PIECES - Variation on a theme!

Had some pieces of wood kicking about in my shop so with reckless abandon I produced two boot blanks and then gave it a whirl.
One piece was a left over piece of Rocky mountain Juniper (left boot), while the other chunk of Amur cherry wood was flat and narrow in shape. I thought of a clown’s boot something like the boots that Ronald Macdonald wears. Maybe I was hankering for a Big Mac!
Six hours later you have the ‘Bits and Pieces’ in boot form.

Enjoy!

It’s always nice to see what you come up with next. Never knew a boot would make me hungry! LOL!

Such a nice little play on words from The Bootman: ”......pieces of wood kicking about in my shop…..”.

Still so very much enjoy my “boot” Roman. You are a rare artisan my good man.

Well, you have booted the rest of us out of contention for the Boot Champion!

Nicely carved as usual. I like the narrow one the better of these 2.

The one on the left looks like it could be a Tinkers Shoe..
While the one on the right looks like a “big foot” boot…
Top job again Roman..
