Type-high texture block - Ash


Newly cut texture block, made from English Ash - I've chosen timber with a wavy end grain to create some interesting textured patterns, due to the nature of Ash the grain can be clearly seen despite the block being polished, this allows lots of possibilities for allowing the pattern to show more by wiping ink away, as well as vary the pressure and ink coverage.

16 x 34 picas (67.7 x 143.9mm) version cut from end grain English ash wood using a combination of modern CNC technology and traditional hand woodworking tools (including an original printers saw), made to English type-high (0.918in or 23.3mm) within plus or minus 0.2mm tolerance, with a traditional polished shellac printing surface.

I'm happy to cut the block down to smaller sizes - please ask.

Materials:
English end grain ash, clear shellac

Dimensions:
16 x 34 picas (67.7 x 143.9mm) x 23.3mm

Made in Wales by Mark McKellier
