Waste not want not! I’ve admired the butcher block patterns posted by talented Lj’ers on previous posts and decided to give it a try with some of my lam beam cutoffs!
I needed some extra width for my blank so I inserted a sheet of purple heart wood. It’s a nice staining wood but it is a @3!#&# to carve. I put the challenge on myself and the boot came out not too badly.
It’ll be a long time before I do another one of these again. Interesting but a lot of work!


The Bootman.

Must go outside to view the solar eclipse just south of my carving shed. Maybe a shot of Scotch in my hand will make the event enjoyable!

If you made real ones like this; you would start a new trend too! Sell the idea to Nike!
