video clip showing engraving procedure

Wood Engraving Video

Here’s a short clip showing how I make a wood engraving. Notice how I push the end grain block into the graver by pivoting it on the engraver’s pillow.
Sorry, there’s no sound.

    Thanks for your comment Tom. I had hoped to make more videos on the way I make wood engravings. In the meantime this short clip does give an idea on how to approach the medium. Best of luck in your own practice.

    Thank you from a complete novice. It is guidance such as this that one really looks for. Obviously books cannot mention all of the little tricks and hints, they can only cover the ‘broad canvas’.
    Very pleased to have found your site.

So great if you could take a minute and leave your thoughts on this.
