Blocks & Services

CORONAVIRUS AND ORDERS: I work from home, on my own, so am able to continue working to fulfill orders as usual. As long as the postal service is functioning I will endeavour to get your blocks to you.

End grain engraving blocks are listed below and are priced per cm2 for. Both woods are available as custom sizes. Please refer to the section Care of Blocks to ensure that your blocks remain in good condition.

Although I offer custom size blocks to order, I always have a stock of ready made blocks for sale, various sizes in Boxwood, Lemonwood and Maple. Please contact me for a list of these.

Standard Size Maple Blocks

maple

Wood Sizes:


American Hard Maple, used by American engravers for decades. My stock is particularly nice to engrave. Pale beige colour, and even in grain, especially good for larger engravings when cost is an issue. Slightly softer than Lemonwood, making it easier to clear areas. I regularly use Maple for my own engravings. Available in standard sizes, but please ask if you require other sizes.

Block Resurfacing

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 1

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.
