Hand carved wooden shoehorns

I have been collecting branches from Pacific Northwest hardwood trees for three decades. When I find one that seems interesting I set it aside until it is thouroughly cured and ready to be worked. Whatever I decide to make from one of these branches, I let the shape and grain patterns in the branch determine the look of the final piece, leaving the most distinctive parts of the branch - bits of bark, worm holes, knots, and scars - largely as they appeared in the original branch. The rest of the ring holder is carefully smoothed and polished in contrast to the rough areas that are left nearly in their original state. When Your Branch Wood Shoehorn receives its final polish I initial it with a guarantee that that it is an original piece of functional wood sculpture, definitely one of a kind. Here are some examples of my one of a kind Branch Wood Shoehorns:
