Day 3, we started our other foot’s last. I personally hacked away at it, almost finishing the entire process in one full day. Leaving just the finessing of the toes for the final day. We even had energy to go out to a local pub built in the 1100’s, and danced to a local skatoons band. Such fun!
Day 4, our last day, a bit a hang-over for a light weight, fine tuned with finer rasp, and hand sanded the bumps to a final shape, matching the toe shapes and volume to each foot as well as our feet measurements. It took another half day to almost a whole day for some, as we got ready. “Know when the lasts are done. Walk away, and come back another time.”
I’ll make a pair of fitters on them to see how they fit!
Am excited to use old wooden men’s lasts that were damaged or mismatched for new last making project to practice!
We want to invite Steve and Dominic to Brooklyn too if logistics work out :) never say never- where there’s a will there’s a way!
