When you want to create the
affect of shoes and their laces, the easiest method is to drill
small holes in the appropriate piece to represent the eyelets of
the shoes or skates, and for the laces do one of two things:
The easiest is to use a wood
burning tool, or brown marker to draw on lace lines.
Alternately, you can make
partial cut lines from the top face (as if you were cutting the
piece of wood into two, from the top face through to the bottom
face). You only need to score the face an eight of an inch or so
for this affect. This is easier if you have not put alot of profile
on the shoe piece. A dremel can be used for this as well.
Watch your fingers!!
