Question Giraffe Patterns

Giraffe Pattern Wanted For Down Loading And Printing Out. I'm A Begining Carver And I've Been Looking For An Easier Pattern To Start With, Instuctions Would Be Great! I Also Would Like Any Giraffe Pattern As I Would Attempt The More Diffificult Ones Later On.
Any Help From Fellow Enthusiasts Would Be Greatly Appreaciated!

Hi Dano, this request might be better over in one of the other forums, maybe Beginner, anyway welcome to the WCI Board.
You could try looking at :
http://porchpatterns.tripod.com/giraffe.html
This is a stylised Giraffe pattern provided by Don Burgdorf, there are a number of other free patterns by Don on this site.
No instructions on carving it but it might help get you started.

Dano,

If I remember right, one of David Sabol's Noah's Ark books have two differently posed giraffe's. I made one for one of my grandkids and it turned out great--and you can put as much detail into it as you want.

Hey Dano

You might do well by going to "Little Mountain" carving supply. They have blanks and instructions. Check it out.

Try Christian J. Hummel company at 1-800-762-0235. They have 3 patterns listed for giraffe. You might also try childrens coloring books they are sometimes a good source for patterns. Hope this helps. "foxy"

Dan;

I carved a 6' 2" giraffe of my own design, roughly patterned after those tall African carvings that you see in import stores. Mine is stylized and smoothly finished, very thin legs. I don't have a pattern, but if you'd like me to try to scan some photos (I have some professionally-done photos) I'll send them.
