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.
I own both DVD’s by Jason and Village Video. Jason is an excellent teacher who is very thorough and detailed with his instruction. Both DVD’s are filmed and produced very well. No stone is left unturned. You will have all the information and insight to complete both projects. I would highly recommend both DVD’s and will support any of their future projects. Great job gentlemen. – J Moody
What a great video. I bought this video even though I took this class with the author at his shop two years ago and I have to say this video is comprehensive a guide as you can get without being there in person.
You cannot go wrong if you are experienced or a novice leather worker or shoe maker. It covers not only how to make the boots, but tools, materials, alternative tools and materials, methods, and animations of the processes. Plus you can follow the author on facebook, and through his website where he offers tools, materials, and complete kits to get started. – Amazon reviewer
This video is so worth the money! Loved his first video and this second is certainly no disappointment! The instructions are clear and easy to follow, after just watching I have no doubts I can do this. The process is long, and there are many steps but have no fear this video will carry you through the making of your own pair of boots! – Eva
This is quite simply idiot proof! Superb quality including the editing and graphics. I feel absolutely confident that I will be able to make some awesome footwear. – Boggy Creek Leather
