These are crafted from 4×4 cedar fence post cut-offs. I had enough wood to make a pair of boots and having visited a MacDonald’s restaurant a week earlier I saw a statue of Ronald the Clown. He was posed sitting on a chair with his legs crossed. His shoes were prominent and immediately caught my eye. Here looking at me were two large Big Macs! They had large toe pieces and immediately the power of subliminal advertising had me buying a Big Mac.
These were carved with flex-shaft, Foredom and Dremel power tools using Typhoon and Saburrtooth burrs. Sanding drums with a 1/4 inch shaft were used to obtain a smoothe surface which was finished with Minwax Wipe-On Poly.
PS The Big Mac was excellent and went well with a medium sized Coke!
