Carving 'em two at a time saves a lot of
wasted time looking for tools
pick up a tool use it...
flip the stick and do the other end
and just keep moving through the tools.
Before you carve the shoes ..
separate with the band saw.
Do the shoes and you are ready to Pant,
oil or wax...
this is carved from a 1 1/4 X 1 1/4 inch

I always tell people that when you try out a new or different pattern.. carve a couple of dozen.. and get all the bugs worked out... and then do about 10 or 12 at a time. It makes them very easy to carve.. one tool.. 12 of the same cuts.. and on to the next step..Try it..
and then do the same for the painting step..
