    Very cool, Larry. Nothing to critique from what I can see. What's a pounce wheel?

    Shoes and boots are fun to carve. Your boot is squarish. A beginners typical result. Take a look at your real boots and try for a more rounded shape. Somehow, when we are carving we don't see the end result for focus on tiny details. I once put many hours into carving a square bear.

    thanks Guys Vaughn a Pounce Wheel is a little spiked wheel on a handle that will roll, with a little pressure it produces a line of small holes that resemble stitches. It is mostly used by seamstresses to produce a pattern by rolling it along the lines when pattern is placed over a piece of material. You then sprinkle a powder and it falls through the holes marking the cloth.for cutting.
