Some of my recent free formed boots from a variety of exotic and domestic woods. Picture 2 came from an elm tree knocked over by a severe storm. Picture 3 is applewood which had a soft core. When I was near completion the core disintegrated so I enhanced the carving by emphasizing the growth rings. Picture 4 a piece of Arbutus wood and boots. Picture 5 shows some pear wood boots. This wood came from friends burn pile and I was able to salvage part of the trunk. In case you are wondering what the red and white striped boot at the centre of picture 1, it is tulip wood.
