I made a bootjack today! It was a heckofa process, since I could not find my power saw and ended up rubbing soap on an old fashioned saw to make it flow better.
Then I finally found my power saw, but insanely chose for the small base piece an old cutting board. I swear, the saw went one millimeter per minute across that board and it took all day to cut that small lower piece!
Anyhoo, here is the jack, finished, and it works like a dream.

If enuf folks respond, I would be happy to develop a tute. This is the first bootjack I have seen on here and winter certainly requires 'em!!
