I had this piece of golden willow in my wood pile which was too small for a man’s style boot so I went for my favourite style in women’s shoes and that is an open heel and open toe – just enough heel showing to make the foot look interesting and ‘sexy’! Also a lower flat heel for comfort. Enjoy!
The bark of the willow shows it’s gold colour and natural beauty. The unit was power carved and finished with a wipe on poly.

Very interesting carving. Now when your wife wants new shoes you can tell her to save her money, you can just make them LOL

Looks great, Roman! Do you have the other foot for her?

Shoo-wee! I think your last incarnation must have been Dutch…. aren’t those the folk with the wooden shoes? Really cool idea and the bark makes it even cooler.
