Seeking Wood Patternmaker For Interview

Hey folks,

I'm a reporter writing an article about the "lost art" of wood patternmaking, specifically pre-CNC/CAD work for sand casting in the automotive production process. (Think: patterns for flywheels, pinion gears, crankcases, brake drums, etc.)

I'm looking for a craftsman to feature in the article. Someone with an active wood shop, who makes wood patterns to replicate vintage auto parts. We would do an interview and photo shoot.

So far, I've reached out to Mr. Billy Moore at The Wood Barn in Placerville, CA, and Mr. Robert L. Clary at Little Oaks Pattern Shop in Ft. Edward, NY.

Any other suggestions for potential interview subjects in the patternmaking community?
