One Block at a Time

Cherry (bottom) and birch

To start the process of creating new prints, I make my own cherry plywood. The process starts with gluing up two 3/8″ thin cut cherry around a birch core with waterproof glue. I sand with 300>600-grit sandpaper, trim the sides, and buff to a very smooth and shiny surface. Only 10 more blocks to prep before things really get started…
