I decided to make some gifts for Christmas this year. Personalized boot jacks for my close friends. Each jack had a different custom piece of leather attached. This was another first for me and was quite interesting past the poster board pattern.

I had to Google this one – never heard of a boot jack before. Makes all kinds of sense now tho, nice work!

Nice!!! This is just the motivation I need to get one of these for my pregnant so I won’t have to pull off her boots this winter.

What type of wood did you use?

This something I haven’t seen made before. I’m assuming you did the leather work yourself. Very nice work!

I used 7/8” oak planks. I did the leathercraft for all of my projects. These are my two hobbies. Thank you all for the comments.

Cool. I’ve been wanting to do something very similar but haven’t been able to justify the tooling for the leather. Did you already have the leather working tools or do you know of a reasonable source to obtain them?

I have the leather tools. I am sure if you take a boot jack into a saddle shop that you should be able to find someone to tool whatever you are looking for on the leather. Your other option is to have it laser engraved. Just an option. Good luck.

Have your say...
