Just a quick 5 hour project spread out over a couple days.
My office is entering into some friendly competition with other offices during a fund raising 10k race.
Some members of the team had created a trophy by spray painting the shoe and attaching it to a bit of particle board.
One look at the particle board and I asked them if I could make a base for the shoe.
They agreed, and this is the result.
I used some rough scraps of walnut I had, really like the figure in the front section of the first photo.
The curved piece is a quick laminate of 4 strips.
There’s a hole in the top and running through the little “square” pieces under the shoe. There’s a large hole in the base so that a socket wrench extension could be used to tighten the bolt holding the shoe on top. I did it this way so that if the shoe ever needs to be changed out for something else it is removable.
I’m still in the middle of a wine rack project, but this little distraction helped test my table saw after some major retooling and it proved to help re-energize me because I was able to quickly complete something.
Danish oil finish.
The wooden base stand just over 12” tall.
thanks for looking!
