Project by Roman - THE BOOTMAN posted 06-29-2018 03:55 PM 2555 views 0 times favorited 9 comments Add to Favorites Watch

I have no shortage of wood pieces, sizes, shapes and colour. My imagination is unbridled, so I just like to have fun with my carving tools, listen to the birds near my carving shed and listen to an old style radio!
Three species of wood, l. to r. first picture, old growth Douglas fir lady’s ‘shmoozer’, multi-coloured workboot, ‘Old-timer’, spruce, ‘razz-m-razz’ jive boot. Where do these ideas come from!??? Perhaps I lead a boring life!
Anyways, thought I would share these with you. Enjoy!

Oh yes, July 1, 2018

” HAPPY CANADA DAY to all my Canadian friends.”

As always the weird BOOTMAN!

Weird is just someone else’s opinion; I prefer the term Unique!

AS long as you are enjoying it; other’s opinions do NT MATTER!

Keep on making woodchips and sawdust!

These look nice to me. You always do a wonderful job on your boots. They are all real eye catchers and you know how to make the most out of the beautiful details and colors in the wood.
