BABY! It’s cold outside! This morning it’s -25 C in Calgary, Alberta. So I decided to stay indoors and post this project.
Two types of carvings – a stylized work boot using Rocky Mountain Juniper with it’s strong colour and grain pattern. I decided to leave it plain as any carved details would not do the piece any justice. The other carving is a detailed and revealed casual brogue made out of basswood. The lack of colour and grain led me to texture the shoe showing characteristics of a brogue. Both carvings were finished with a matte spray.
At this time I would like to share my news about these two carvings. They are two feature projects in my DIY carving book due for release June 2014 from Schiffer Books. You may see the announcement at http://www.schifferbooks.com/power-carving-boots-shoes-5473.html.
The book is titled, what else??—Power Carving Boots & Shoes
Now for a hot rum to warm up!
