In 1897, Gambier Bolton wrote a magazine article that said that McDonald's had his own electric machine, yet he preferred to use Japanese hand tools, which included ivory hands. He also used to use hand tools despite heavy shading.

He worked out of his studio on Jarmin Street from 1894 for a period of his career. He died in 1937. Their clients reached Duk and the kings of Norway and the Danish kings. After King Edward VII and his son George V, he found a wave of success, everyone got tattoos. He added his work in the ink that he was found in Jerusalem and Japan. Loder explained that McDonald's was the reason for such fame because many people wanted to copy the copy of the king and his family.

In his research, Loder discovered images from McDonald's work in places such as the National Archives and at the Harvard University. Those documents confirmed that he was the first person to open a parlor in London. His work ranged from Japanese dragon and wildlife to carving and landscape.
