I’ve got a lot done in the last couple days. I fnally got thread that works and the sewing has been fairly flawless. I finished the sewing on the second upper and have started lasting. I have detailed images if you need to see them, just let me know.
When the glue dried completely I will rasp the lumps and bumps in the lining to smooth it. Once that’s done I will do an infill to make the bottom completely smooth and glue on my shaped bottoms. These I will have to clamp in place to ensure I get firm smooth connect.
