****o Everyone!

I want to carve small blocks of wood, about 8inch x 6inch, to ink up and use to make wood block ink prints on paper. First I will draw the design and then will need to carve out fairly big sections here and there to leave the relief to be inked. Does anyone have suggestions for bits? Which are good for curvy areas, small areas, others to basically just bite out sections, and also to make nice straight edge lines?? Any suggestions are gratefully accepted!

Mayra

I would get the router attachment and the router bits. They will let you set the depth to remove what wood you do not want. I would also use some small carbide bits to get in close . Then finish with hand tools. What wood are you useing for your blocks?  Ed
