Wood Engraving Blocks of End Grain Maple

  Maple End grain Wood Engraving Block is .918" thick for artist wood engraving. Letterpress Type High Wood Engraving Block made by Art Boards™ Printmaking Arts Supply. Wood End Grain Engraving Block for printmaking made by Art Boards™ Archival Art Supply  

The origins of wood engraving date back as early as the 17th and 18th-century.


Like Typesetting, wood engraving is a relief process, the lines to be printed remain in the block after the areas in between the lines are cut away.  The raised uncut areas and lines of the block will hold the ink and print, the wood that is cut away will not.  The print is made when the raised wood makes contact with the printing paper.


Wood Engraving differs from woodcut in both tools and materials used.


The graver and the burin, tools associated with intaglio engraving, are employed, and the carving is done on the end grain, not the face of the plank grain. The tight end grain of the engraving block allows for finer lines and a wider range of tonal effects.


Art Boards™ end grain engraving blocks are made from carefully selected Maple Hardwood.


The hard maple is jointed perfectly strait then cut and glued together using water proof glue to form the sections of the end grain printing blocks. The wood engraving block is dimensioned to .918 inches thick.  The wood block is then finely sanded for wood engraving and printing. The engraving block can be printed in a letterpress or by hand.
