Forestry / Wood / Timber / cork production
French term or phrase: sabate
From a short text describing the process involved in cork extraction and production:

" - Il glisse le manche côté biseauté entre la mère et le liège, jusqu’aux sabates*.
- Il donne un coup de hache dans les sabates pour détacher les planches.

*mère : c’est ce qu’il y a après l’écorce
*sabate : c’est le bout de l’écorce qui ne tient que par le pied "

Any help greatly appreciated...

See my previous question for "mère" from the same text.
