To use this wood block for relief carving, create a pattern or design you want on carbon paper or any similar material then transfer it to the surface of the wood. Using different kinds of gouges and chisels, carve the spaces of the wood you will not use in printing as this will not carry ink while the uncarved part of the wood is the one that will carry ink and produce prints. The final result should look like a 3-D version of the design or pattern you drew.
