I’m testing out the Harbor Freight carving chisel set (sells for about ) by doing some wood cut prints.
As you know, I’m a teacher, and a genre of literature that fascinates me is called “cordel” poetry from Brazil. On it, these poetry pamphlets have woodcut designs for the front cover, and now that art style is iconic. Since it combines two of my interests–woodworking and literature–I thought I’d try my hand at doing what Brazilians call “xilogravura” or wood cut printing.
I’m more or less happy with the result of the wood cut, not so much with the printing.
Also, I will be coming out with a first impressions video for the carving set.
Let me know if you have questions!
Thanks for watching!
I really do hope you have enjoyed this video. Please feel free to check out my other social profiles.
