I found an odd shaped piece of Amur cherry in my wood bin and proceeded to carve an odd shaped work boot. Compared to my other boots I did a bit more reveal work to give the boot an old wrinkled look. Then to complicate matters even further I decided to do a dye job on the structure and the battle between carver/designer and the subject waged on. I started with an ox blood leather dye which made the boot too ‘hot’ so I toned it done with some brown leather dye. Topped it up with a lacquer finish which needs some further toning done as shown by the pictures! I hope Grandpa would be proud!
The boot stands 6 inches high, 7 inches heel to toe and 4 1/2 – 5 inches wide. Size unknown!!!???
