David has been creating kinetic sculptures for a very long time - since the 70's. And for each design out there we have created directions for the owners. This started long before we had a computer so many of the directions aren't in digital format. Here is an example of the illustration that is part of the Inventor Released Directions Packet.
Others are in formats no longer readable by today's software. We have known for awhile that we needed to make this archive of directions available online but oh, what a job! Thanks to our daughter Amy that project is now well on its way to completion. She has scanned all directions that were not digital or could no longer be opened and she saved them in pdf format. She has also saved all directions that could still be accessed in pdf format as well. And she has uploaded them all, created links to their photos and made it all accessible to you.
Available today is the the Wood That Works Directions Page here. There is a phenomenal listing of sculptures created by David over the years.
Now, the next time you need the instructions for your David C. Roy kinetic sculpture you can simply download a copy here.
Many of the newer designs have online directions already. The most recent designs will be getting similar webpages and downloads as well.
