sticks4walking writes: This was a learning process. Thank you to Jordan for putting this on. It is no wonder that Jordan is the caliber carver he is if he started out carving shoes! Also, he was right, “smaller IS harder”. I have learned a lot doing this challenge. I was afraid that the black paint would hide the details but they are still visible. All in all, it could have turned out better but I am happy enough with it.
Thanks again Jordan,

I bet that white detailing took a while – nicely done! Congrats on “graduating” the carving class!

Sorry to say that I disagree with you! You did a very fine job on the shoe and should be proud to hold your head up high. You can only go up from here and do work like Jordan does. I will be expecting no less from you. I am proud of everyone who participated and it shows the caliber of the teacher when all his students put out super fine work. Be proud and continue to do fine carvings now that you know you can!

Looks great to me! I can always find flaws when I finish something, but you got to call it finished at some point….and you try and do the next one better! You have a talent for this and I hope we’ll see more of your stuff.

You cannot fool me. That is a picture of the real shoe. You are supposed to carve one…
great job. Just don’t try to put it on when you go jogging.
I think the Dutch have just lost the title of wooden shoe carver champions.
