Soapstone Carving Blocks - Woodworking
Soapstone is a versatile material for carving — regular carving tools will work well with it, as do gravers and files.

This is a soft soapstone that is even easier to shape than wood. It buffs readily to a variegated green finish. The blocks we sell measure approximately 3" x 3" x 5" and 6" x 6" x 12", and weigh 4-1/2 lb and 44 lb respectively.

This is an excellent medium for beginning carvers because results are not dependent on tool sharpness. Of particular interest is the fact that it can be readily cut on a table saw or bandsaw. A scroll saw or fret saw can be used to cut letters or numbers for striking signs.

Instructions for use are included. Made in Canada.

The 6"x6"x12" soapstone block is not stocked at our retail stores, but can be ordered for pick-up at our stores.

The 6" x 6" x 12" Block is no longer available.
