MOM and POP! Birch wood dancers!

Had a short log of birch about 10 inches in diameter. Splitting it roughly in half, two blanks provided me enough wood for the Mom and Pop dancers. Birch is a nice wood to work with but I did have a few splits that show up on the toe of the man’s boot.
Finished with spray on varnish.
Let’s go dancin’!

As always different as the ones before but recognizable as real Romans. Well done.

Wow so nice!!!
Stain them black and you’d think they were real well used boots.

Just outstanding. I think they actually look better with the splits you refer to.

What size are they (asking for a friend in need of some shoes)?

Seriously, though, those are some very nice pieces of art. You never cease to amaze me how your boot projects keep coming so soon one after the other. The intricacies involved with carving and shaping should be taking you a whole lot more time (based on how quickly I do things, of course).
