I was asked to make a set of three boot jacks for a friend. At first I wasn't sure what it was but I was shown their old one and after finishing a Rohan bunk bed a simple boot jack was easy.
I had enough hardwood planks laying around so I made them out of Maple, Hickory, and Mahogany. I had plenty of scrap leather and some brass tacks. I tried upholstery tacks but tat didn't work, and I learned that leather has a bit of stretch to it.
She was quite pleased with them.
