Cliff Whiting demonstrating wood engraving technique

Cliff Whiting is demonstrating to me his wood block engraving technique. The hardwood end grain is resting on a leather sand bag and Cliff is using an engraving tool to scrape and carve the detail in his block. The end grain is very hard and flat and allows for great detail. The cuts are reasonably shallow but are deep enough to result in a wonderfully sharp, detailed relief
