Supplying Camps and Carvers since 1984
Over the years, woodcarving has enriched my life in so many ways that I became committed to doing all I could to help others discover those pleasures for themselves.
My woodcarving patterns encourage rather than frustrate carvers, from beginners to advanced. Although my patterns were initially designed as scout neckerchief slides, they are easily -- and frequently -- adapted to serve as bolo slides and refrigerator magnets as well.
For the beginning carver, or for those looking for a new pattern to work with, you can always read my articles in the bi-monthly Chip Chats magazine. They are very similar to the old "Slide of the Month" articles in Boy's Life magazine. Get the latest article »

For the first time ever, I've decided to clean out some boxes and am offering a few carved and painted -- by me! -- kerchief slides. This set includes several Chief Big Jaws and Eagle Heads.
