  1. Hello John Steins,

    I have enjoyed looking at your work very much. I am wondering whether you make your own engrain blocks for wood engraving? I am guessing from the comment above that you do. What kind of wood do you favor most?

    Please forgive my many questions, but I am wondering about printing wood engravings on an etching press. I’m not sure about this yet as it may be a ridiculous idea. I figure there must be some sort of housing that I can build for a block to remain in place on the press bed. Have you ever tried anything like this, or do you use a more sane approach…with a baren?

    Again, your work is terrific!

  2. Hi and thanks for dropping by my site and for your encouraging comments.

    Yes, I do make my own blocks from time to time. I have a supply of boxwood that varies in quality but I do what I can to make up something when needed. I have access to a woodworking shop, so that helps.

    Check out this link on my blog where I discuss relief printing on a press http://www.johnsteins.com/etching-press.html

    It works very well as long as your engraving block is nice and flat.

    Don’t hesitate to ask if you need any additional advice.

    John
