Hello all! Been busy shaping my Amur cherry cowboy boots. Have the outer surface sanded, completed the removal of the inner wood.Have just the sanding and staining of the inner surface and should be able to glue the boot pieces for the final push. Need to craft some pull-up straps to complete the last details. Clear stain should be the finishing touch!

The last three pictures show the completed projects that have been hanging around my shop for a few weeks. Sometimes one needs a break from a long drawn out piece of work to get refreshed and recharged.

Pic 4 Large work boot carved from laminated 1×6 cedar off-cuts. Lots of action with grain and colour left me no comfortable option but to carve in a checker board pattern. The X and O game came to mind. It was not one for my winning. So I cheated by adding extra letters, pic 5.

Pic 6 These two creations are a gift for my 5-ish and 7-ish thinking they’re 15! grand daughters. They’ve been challenging me with their boot sketches and I completed these two shoes with a lot of joy! It will be their job to complete the shoes with a paint job. Heaven help me!!!

Until next time- Roman the Bootman!
