Endgrain blocks resurfaced. Most blocks can be resurfaced to offer pristine engraving surface. Boxwood blocks sometimes throw up small surface defects when resurfaced. This is almost never the case with lemonwood. Cost is 12p per square cm. Please input your block size in square cms as the quantity to calculate price.
Tool Sharpening – Wood Engraving Tools
Wood engraving tools reground and sharpened at a cost of £3 per tool. Please select the quantity of tools you would like me to sharpen. PLEASE NOTE: this service is only for wood engraving tools, not woodcut/linocut tools. I may offer the latter service again in the future, but for now, I only sharpen engraving tools. If you have woodcut/linocut tools I advise buying a Flexcut Slipstrop for regular honing of the edge. Return postage costs apply.
Tool Shortening & Sharpening
Wood engraving tools reground, sharpened and shortened to required length at a cost of £5 per tool. Please select the quantity of tools you would like me to shorten and sharpen. Return postage costs apply.
Printmaking burnishers in hardwood with horn tip. I am currently making these in locally sourced Yew wood. Burnishing with these tools makes the process both comfortable and efficient.
Small endgrain blocks for practice. A mix of Lemonwood, Pearwood and Boxwood. You can get an idea of block sizes from the photograph. All blocks are finished to the same standard as custom blocks, not scraps or offcuts. The height may be a little below or above type high. Please specify if you require them not to be above type high.
