Publisher Comments:

If you've ever wondered what design to carve next or what style of pattern to use to enhance your current woodworking project, Lora Irish's treasury of classic wood patterns is for you. Within its pages, you'll find a vast selection of traditional themes to carve, burn, or paint. Each design is presented as an easy-to-reproduce outline pattern, which can be transferred directly to your project, and as a sharply detailed sketch to guide the carving or shading of the design. Along with the patterns are tips on design composition, planning, and placement on the furniture form. As you browse through the pages of this design collection, you'll discover lions and eagles, scrolls and ribbons, traditional leaf trims and intricate floral centerpieces. In the fantasy realm there are gargoyles and dragons. Natural patterns include grapes and vines, oak leaves and acorns, and much more.
