Had some knotty pine off-cuts given to me. So I laminated them before they reached the burn pile.
Easy to carve but the sap was not nice to my sanding drums.
The knots, colour and laminations created an interesting character. Now I’ll have to make up some cock-eyed story about the boot.

A very interesting boot. I do like the wood patterns well too.

About 1/2 pint of a good Scotch should enable the story too!

What is Santa going to do with only one boot, better make him another one. Merry Christmas. First day of snow here

Very nice job on this boot. It has a very pleasing organic shape. I ruined a sanding roll on my drum sander while making some pine segmented rings. I will never do that again!!
