Interesting Discussion On Last Making

Recommended Posts

I have been enjoying reading a discussion in the boots and shoes section on making lasts, especially posts #8, 11 and 15 here: http://leatherworker.net/forum/index.php?showtopic=31883 While there are pretty major differences between a last and a tree (a tree is part of the final product, a last is a tool used to make the final product, a shoe encases a foot, a tree sits on top of a horse's back, etc.) there are some very good points in this thread explaining why making a shoe over an exact replica of a foot is a bad idea. The same concepts apply to trees for the same reasons. Lots to think about...
