What tools were made to make colonial shoes?
There were shoemakers or cobblers who measured each person's feet and carved lasts [templates] out of wood with knives. Then they cut the leather with knives, and sewed the pieces together with needle and thread, punching the holes with awls.

\n. \n Answer \n. \nThey cut out the leather pieces according to the size of the shoe they wanted and then they sew the pieces together. Small nails or pegs were used …to fasten the sole to the uppers. And the early shoes didn't have a left and right to them, they were the same for both feet.
A cobbler used a hammer and nails, dubbin, wax, last,needle and thread, and a shoe stretcher.

i guess it shows that he had relapsed again from the last time he was in the Bastille and he still remembers his old days in it.....
i really don't know
some tools that are used are: Saws: A tool that would cut off large pieces of wood off of maybe a large tree trunk or something like it. Drawknife: A two handed tool that you… would place on the wood and then pull toward you. It would shave off small portions of the wood. Lathe: A great wooden wheel that turned a piece of wood so the cabinetmaker would carve into a desired shape. Sand or Steel wool: materials to shave off portions of the wood that creates saw dust and it makes the wood smooth. You have to know when to use these tools. Hammers: A tool that would drive nails into pieces of wood to join them together. Plane: A box tool that has a blade in it. The blade would be placed at a very specific angle so that the wood would become smooth. Glue: A hot substance that was made out of animal bones and skin. This glue when applied to a piece of wood, you could then join that piece of wood with another. This glue was very sticky, and when dry, became very hard.
Mainly an anvil and hammer. You might want to research it more though. ;)
The colonial cobbler used leather, a heavy needle, heavy thread, a cobbler's hammer, and shoe brads.
out of cow skin and animal hide ( this is the native american way)
You apprenticed with a master cobbler.
