    I do not have a froe… what could be used instead? Maybe a long blade knife?

    With all the shit you involved in the making of these shoes, you should have gone ahead and built a split level modern bungalow while you were at it. Check out the "Busy Bayman" for much better shoes.

    Well done. I like the frame you made but I would have used rawhide for the webbing. Soak it, strap it, and then finish with some type of varnish once it is dry. Leather will take on water and turn soft when wet. You will start to sink in the snow.

    Really loved this Chris, especially how the music stops when you run into a problem, AND record and play it, to show problems do arise in reality. So well done. The mind of man is fascinating in terms of passing on and teaching one another. The music was awesome btw, a real taste of home for me…pn…Ireland ♥

    Hi Chris, I know with the right wood and just with your hand tools, you could even make a greater traditional pair of snowshoes, with my book. Leaving Tracks: A Maine Tradition, on how to make them with rawhide and brown ash tree. Iive been doing snowshoes and baskets for over 45 years.

    Used snowshoes alot in my youth. It IS hard to get back up the first time you fall. That was very neat to watch. I like the hand tools only approach you use. Thanks Chris.

    When I said on one of my latest projects that I hand sanded my piece for 8 hours people called me nuts. What did you get for 8 hours of weaving?? 🙂 beautifully done, and a pretty useful item, should you be living in a snowy area 🙂

    Hey Chris, so glad to see you again, nice job on the snowshoes, those can last a long long time if properly maintained. It sucks that this winter where i'm at, we barely had any snow at all, couldn't use mine 🙁 Keep it up my friend 🙂

    Chris, great video as usual. I've noticed that your latter videos are mostly high speed shots. I do miss seeing some of the real time stuff. Not knocking your wonderful, great quality stuff. Keep me coming.

    March isn't too late for this video if you happen to live in a place that has snow till June. I don't live in such a place, but I know they exist.
