Wood Carving patterns can be broken down into carving themes. These carving themes cover almost anything you can think of from birds to water to 3-D carving. And the supply of patterns available on the Internet seems endless.
Patterns are available online for relief carving or freestanding three-dimensional carving, and more. The best means of transferring a pattern from a design to the wood is by the use of graphite paper. Graphite paper is especially good for this because the lines may be erased with a regular eraser.
