Village Video is excited to announce a partnership with Laughingcrowe school of non-lasted shoemaking to bring you a Scandinavian Turnshoe instructional video.
In this video, shoemaker Jason Hovatter teaches you how to build a pair of Scandinavian turnshoes from the ground up. Beginning with a duct tape casting of the foot, he walks you step by step through his process of non-lasted turnshoe making. Learn to make a pair of truly custom shoes tailored to your unique feet! Over 4 1/2 hours of video, animations, and detailed instructions.
These shoes can be made with three specialized tools. The curved bladed awl is a curved awl that is sharpened. The hand stitcher is a McKay stitcher needle mounted in a handle. The skive is a common leather working tool. You can purchase and improvise these yourself, or buy a bundle of these tools with the tire dust for your soles, prepared by Laughingcrowe, in our store. We cover how to improvise the rest of the tools in the video, like how to modify a kitchen fork to make a stitch groover.
