It has always been Ol' Don's pleasure to provide original art for folk and encourage their creativity with patterns of subjects meaningful to them. Each pattern collection, now on CD,is created with common theme. For each major (front, profile and top) plus reference sketches. The number of secondary subjects on each CD varies according to the number of detailed drawings required for the individual subjects. CDs of uncomplicated projects contain a greater variety of patterns while complex subjects require more "close-up" and reference view drawings. Although he occasionally makes reference to carving techniques, these are not carving instruction manuals. There are no step by step instructions. This allows each carver to develop the subject in the style of carving with which he or she is most comfortable. Click here for a sample of his PATTERN offerings. Fifteen CDs are now available with new titles currently being developed. A random sampling of some of the pattern subjects available are shown above. Carvings done from some of the patterns can be seen on the "SHOWCASE" page. When ordering please order by the subject (title) of the CD collection(s) desired.
Clicking on the underlined title you're interested in will open a page describing its contents.
The newest collection is titled, "Tasteful and Tacky Toothpick Holders". Over 30 photographs of toothpick holders Ol' Don has carved plus more than 25 patterns of additional toothpick holder subjects for your carving pleasure.
