Woodcarving / Whittling 12 Basswood Cowboy Boot Blanks (i Carve 1 For You) :
For the new wood carver a cowboy boot is a good way to get started. It is how I started. This is a great way to practice and get familiar with your carving knife as well as how to work with the grain of the wood. I have included 12 boots - counting the one finished boot I "whittled" for you to "go by". The premium basswood boot blanks are roughly 3" tall, 2" heel to toe, by 3/4" thick. By the time you carve all 11 blanks your boots may look better than mine. At about $2.95 a boot delivered including the one carved boot (that may be extremely valuable some day, ha!) this is great deal for someone wanting to get started carving. I will send 12 blanks if you prefer to not have the finished "go by" boot or if you already have one of my finished boots. If you are a pro then no doubt you know much fun these are to carve and you are also welcometo buy these and show us all how its done! Check my references (response) on these boots. The much appreciated response on these include the following quotes...

If you don't have a leather strop and compound to keep your knives and tools sharp... you don't know how bad you need one until you try it (I didn't).
These strop are often offered in sales and most are available as buy it now options, separately as well as packaged with compounds. I currently have distinctly different strops available in various sizes, colors, etc. From smallest to largest they include:the POCKET, COMPACT, HD COMPACT, LARGE, JUMBO, BILLY, 4STROKE, SUPER, and the BIG BOY

More about me and these boot blanks. I am a Landscape Architect (Tx. lic. # 2348)but a woodcarver by blood (in more ways than one). I make a living by landscaping but I live to carve and want to help others do the same. I spend considerable time transferring my pattern and cutting these blanks out on a bandsaw. I use a extremely sharp slightly modified $3 pocket knife I bought on to show that you don't have to have a bunch of tools to get started. I can carve the "go by" boot, date and sign with my "brand" as well as the mark my grandpa put on all of his woodcraft... a single dot, and apply finish in about an hour (my first boot took me all day!). My main objective in selling these boots is to introduce this hobby to anyone interested in carving. When these sell for $34.95 I figured out I make about $4.50 an hour, but if it helps pass this hobby along my satisfaction is priceless. Any money that is left after material costs, and Paypal fees, etc. it is money I can use with my wife's blessing to buy more knives, carving tools, and basswood. This is a win - win situation, you get a hand carved cowboy boot (sold elsewhere for more than the listing price). These are some of the best basswood boot blanks around these parts to help you start carving, all at a reasonable price and I get to keep carving! Each winner gets an email of boot carving tips with pictures free.Go ahead and buy this handcarved boot and these fine quality basswood boot blanks to make them yours (or a really nice gift) and get to carvin' em'. THANKS!
