Default Free Patterns

Well, at the risk of alienating everyone in the woodcarving world, I am going to post a list of websites offering free patterns. People ask for patterns, and we post the links and then they get lost in the ever growing maze of the Wood Carving Illustrated Forum website. Some of these patterns are for beginners, some are more advanced. They're not sorted by category, i.e. caricatures, relief, etc.--they're just listed. Some have been around for a long time, but they're great. So, when you're bored and need something to do, look through these links, and I'm sure you'll find something. If not, google on "free wood carving projects" or "free wood carving patterns", and then maybe you'll come up with some new ones. If you do, be kind enough to add the links of what you find to this thread so that others can use them, too. Same if you have some favorites that I haven't listed here. Thanks!

Anyway, here's what I've found so far:

Amateur Woodworker: Carved Owl

Free Online Instructions to Wood Carving Projects
Free Carving Pattern Package

Cool Re: Free Patterns

Hi-Ho! In reference to your comment "Too bad we can't keep that list somewhere." Just a suggestion in the event that you hadn't thought of it or for those new to computers who might not know how. When ever I run across a page on the internet that I want to save for reference, I copy the page that I want to save on the web, open my "Outlook Express" and do a "create mail", and then paste the page from the web to the new message blank. Then I send it to myself so that I can file it away in the appropriate in-box as I've done for this page. Now I have both a URL for my browser "Favorites" plus a hard copy of the page so that if the URL is ever corrupted or taken down I still have the free carving pattern websites.

Hey Eddy, I tried your method of saving this thread and appreciate your efforts for us PC dumbies, but I couldn't do it. It started me trying different things to save this thread. What I did was Right Click on the thread and save in My Favorites and Bingo their it was. Thganks for making me think Eddy.
