The "Denims" stool

A bit of carving.....I don't know why or how this came about, but when a fork between two branches of hazel looked like a pair of jeans, it seemed natural to carve a cowboy boot and put it on the bottom of the branch! (I know...it's mad...)

The "blocking out" of the shape.






Then the finished carving.



Is it mad? Oh well, my defence is "one's man meat is another man's poison! Now to decide how to weave the top - any ideas?

No ideas about weaving seats, sorry, but I just wanted to say I absolutely *love* the mad little cowboy boot! :-)

Thank you Wendy! I've just stained the denims blue this afternoon.....
