Had piece of B.C. pine about 14 inch long and 6 inches in diameter. I squared it off and proceeded to cut my boot blanks. One blank was slightly smaller and that became the missus’ boot. The bigger boot had a slight blemish.
When the log was being cut, the chainsaw accidentally left a small knick at one end. Off course being the caring person that I am, I took this blank for my boot. No worries I found a piece of walnut and glued it into the cut. Such sacrifices that we men make. Both boots turned out well.

Nice job!!!
Love it when you do both feet so it looks like they could be used by someone.
I just went back and had a gander of all your boot projects and man you have really covered some ground with all the different styles you have created. WOW!!!
