The boot
The boot No picture No picture No picture No picture No picture

Made from scrap hardwood and then burned with the youngest grandson’s initials.

It is 1/2 inch thick and just a touch over 4” tall.

The pattern is a boot blank that I had previously modified.
The wood-burning is all freehand. Using 2 different points.

It was a fun thing and he loves it.

I like your writing about fix in fence. I have been on one of those work jobs when I was a kid on my dad’s farm in Manitoba. The other job we had some aversion to was picking’ stones. Dad would get my brothers and me to pick stone off our fields in the hottest days of summer early in they day just as we were getting up from the Friday night dance party. That was wicked and the sun was hot. Thanks for your comments. Roman.
