Pretty good product
Comments about Martin Universal Design Carving Block Holder:
I would have given this 5 stars if the wood had finish on it. I had to put poly on every one which took a lot of work. I like the notch, and have not had any broken ones with 5 high school classes doing printmaking.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Love the center notch
By Le Arte Teacher
from Northampton, PA
I've been an art teacher for 20 years, and bought this for my 11 yr. old to try linocut. (Please note: I do not recommend linocut for young artists, and this was done with careful 1 on 1 supervision.) The middle notch was wonderful! It gave great support against all the pressure needed to carve, allowing her to turn her work to in-between positions to carve more safely. We only used this bench hook for carving, not inking. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars because I felt the wood was light and soft. I'm sure the material keeps the cost of the product low, but I wish it was made of a harder wood or metal.

This item is great for printmaking at home or on the go. Good value, nice product, lightweight, yet sturdy.
practical, helpful tool
By visual artist

I have a small space to work, so this has several functions: the main one, I use to to carve lino blocks without them sliding around dangerously (even unmounted), and also to ink them before printing, and if I put a sheet of acrylic on it I can also use it to roll the ink on it, without making a mess. Simple, but quite useful and I like the feel of wood.

These are Great!
We are using this for linoleum prints, and also wood cuts. I love that my students can brace their work and not have to worry about cutting towards their hands.Wish they were built a little more solid.

Good to have
A must have for the casual living room carver. Makes every surface a potential for creativity.

A good solid value
from Cincinnati, OH
I hae only had the time to use this several times. But I do like that it fits over the edge of the table to keep it steady. I wish it was a little larger. Okay, a lot larger to better handle large blocks.
