The wood for my church boot is laminated strips of maple, some cut-offs from a maple bar I helped install for the club house of a private golf course south of town. The wood had no interesting variations so I decided to spray paint it with a Tremclad iridescent copper toned paint. The photos don’t do it justice but the boot does have some sparkles in it. Good enough to go to church in. If you are not into church going, the boot would be exquisite on the dance floor, jiving with you ‘honey’!
Next post – the work boot!

Those are very cool.

Sorry for my ignorance.

Were those carved? Or made by some other method?
