This boot is the brother to the last boot posted. When I cut the log for that boot I left a piece that was a branch to the log. The large gape is the crotch of the branch and I was intimidated with making a blank for the next boot.
Where do I make the first cut? Squaring off the piece I soon found many variations and was wondering how I would carve into such a piece. Like a jeweller with his rough diamond I proceeded to shape my blank into a shoe and let the chips fall. The wood was talking to me and I followed the the gape and incorporated the growth rings as best as I could. Finishing with a clear varnish, the colours jumped at me. Adding any further details would be fruitless.
I hope you enjoy the boot. Thank you, Roman
