Use a bench hook to carve your linocut and relief plates to keep your fingers safe. It has a lip at the top, as well as on the side so you can carve your plate at a natural angle. I construct each bench hook by hand from an oak panel, pine trim, antique brass screws, and prim them with walnut oil for a natural and non toxic finish. It measures 11.5″ x 9″ x 1″.
These are custom made. Select whether you are right or left handed from the menu below.
This listing only includes the bench hook. The linoleum plate, carving tool, and press are sold separately in the shop.
