Another log found in my wood pile, a piece of Amur cherry measuring height 17 inches, diameter 5 inches. Had to try something different so I kept the log intact and cut out three chunks of wood with the bandsaw. Usually I square off the log by removing the outer bark layer and then proceed to develop my boot blanks for carving with my power carver.
This time I went from treat to threat and decided to make things a bit of a challenge, namely a tower of boots in one log. I also complicated matters as I wanted to keep as much of the bark layer in the boots as the pattern allowed. So to my drafting table I will then make sketches of each boot ensuring that the grain, bark and knots add to the final sculpture.
When complete I hope that the boots will slip in and out of their cavity as easy as possible and yet keep the integrity of the log intact.
When finished the sculpture will be mounted on a suitable base for stability and viewing.

Stay tuned!
Roman, the crazy Bootman!
