If you recall two winters ago I had chopped down my 30 year old plus willow trees around my house. I got some wood the other day from my friend’s storage (wood house) and the willow was seasoned enough for me to carve. For some reason, maybe because the trees were so huge my plan for a boot was just as large. Since I liked the coarse bark, I thought that it would fit well for a shoe house.
The carving went along well and the ‘old woman’s shoe’ can now hear screaming kids again!

My apologies but I have no windows to open the inner living space and there are no shingles for one side of the roof. Where this house will be located there is rain and snow from only the shingle side of the house. So there!

Enjoy the willow grain.

Regards to all, The Bootman!

|I have a hunch by the amount of boots you produce that you are booting up a cnc machine, but then again they could never poduce a produce a grand as you do.

Another one of your great looking shoe carvings! I like how you included the bark in this one—like the shoe grew out of the tree!
