For carvers who are looking for additional patterns for their work, the link below will get you to a variety of patterns and books that may contain some interesting designs for you to use (or be inspired by). The site deals with leather carving, which has a lot of similarities to relief carving in wood, but uses stamping (compression) of the leather vs removal of material as we do in wood carving. If you are interested in trying leather carving, possibly as an addition such as inlay to your wood working, there are also instructional videos available. Most of the patterns are “western” or wildlife related, but there’s a lot to choose from. Regardless, the patterns are quite adaptable to wood, so take a look.
Here’s an example of one of their Free patterns . . .
