Turnshoes Finished

Finally “finished” enough.  Rubbed down with a “tea” of walnut juice, worn dry, and oiled.

I already know the modifications needed for the next pair.

    I’d wear those. They would go perfect with my home grown kilts.

      Thanks. No last. Made moccasin style or early European. Just a bunch of foot measurements, tacking together, sewing up and turning out. I do want to get or make some lasts though. I hear it makes things much easier and more accurate.

    Hey! I’m looking for a video that teaches step you step how to make this shoes, do you have one?? I started working with leather and I’m more or less handy with the tools and patterns. Can you help me, please?
