Wood block printing and chisels
Woodblock Printing and Tools
Woodblock printing tools are usually a variety of sharp chisels and cutting tools. They are suited for intricate woodworking and the chisel heads are shaped to numerous different profiles. The sample above is a work in progress and shows the chisels atop the woodblock. Making woodblocks is a great hobby and many a pleasant winter’s evening can be spent at this craft, perhaps as an alternative to playing family board games like Scrabble or Monopoly. This particular wood cut was used to make greeting cards for Christmas but other wood cuts can be used for Thanksgiving cards or Easter cards.
