My friend’s Amur cherry tree had a few smaller diameter branches. I didn’t have a heart to put these on a fire pile so these boots are a result. Diameter was mostly 4 to 5 inches.
I love the tobacco colour and the copper coloured bark adds to the character. Spit and polished we’re ready to go to church!!!!
Enjoy!

The one higher on the tree looks like it has the inverted face of Elvis Prestley on the toe area. These are very nice carvings, thanks.
