In 2006 I decided to shift my primary craft focus to the Art of Making Shoes.
Shoes are hard to make.
This is where I am so far. I like to call myself a "Self Directed Apprentice"
I also make custom tools for Shoe and Boot Making

Shoe Making: Men's Practise Derby V4c
OK, so this is Mod #2 to the 1958 11B lasts.
I think I have it? The inside joint for my foot is too far rearward and I have a very narrow foot so I took a 1/4" out of the inside.
I am standardizing my pattern making process with this extended experiment I have been conducting.
Using grey, blue, and red pencil i have all of the construction development info on a single pattern master. I simply make 4 xerox copies and cut out the separate pattern pieces.
