hairy writes: This is my boot. From about 10 feet away it looks pretty good.It is one of the things I am proud of doing. There are parts of it that I got right, and other parts that I really messed up. I learned a lot by doing this. Not just a new skill, but a new way to look at things. The tip about using a piece of paper to scale down is pure,simple genius. Thanks to Jordan and lumberjocks for doing this, and thanks for looking at my little boot.

Doing the boot had to be a challenge in itself. The sole looks just about perfect too! I love the picture where they are both laying on their sides. You really did a beautiful job!

I agree with scrollgirl- the sole is excellent. I think a high boot for a first project would have been extra hard- so you are to be congratulated on a job well done!

Thanks! I wanted to do a sock, but Jordan wouldn’t let me.

The last pic makes it look that is a hefty sized original! Nice job on your carving.
