Woodblock made ca. 1930 exactly the same way as they were made by artisans ca. 1830. The skill and the care are the same. There is a drawing or a copy of it coming from the artist. Then the woodcutter and the printer take over. Their skill varies. Hokusai once wrote to one of his editors that he was not happy with one of the woodcutters. In the case of the new cuts of the 36 views of the Fuji, only experts can distinguish the many versions - mainly by differences of the frame around the script

Using This Wiki
An open wiki is a great way to impart knowledge, and collaborate on research projects in any given field of interest. When a group of people come together and share and discuss ideas about a subject, there is no end to the depth or layers of knowledge that can develop. The process of editing, sharing, and imparting knowledge for others to use and create upon is how subjects are expanded and accuracy is gained. This is called, Wiki.

What is a Wiki?
A wiki (wɪki/ WIK-ee) is a website which allows collaborative modification of its content and structure directly from the web browser. In a typical wiki, text is written using a simplified markup language (known as "wiki markup")The markup language used on a Wiki page is most commonly called Wiki Syntax. It uses common characters in uncommon ways (or character combinations that are not normally used together) and provides them with a special meaning. Some of the character combinations only work at the beginning of a line, while others can be inserted anywhere in the text and are active until they are turned off., and often edited with the help of a rich-text editor. A wiki Web site operates on a principle of collaborative trust. The simplest wiki programs allow users to create and edit content. The most popular wiki is Wikipedia.

The Software
Tikiwiki is a widely used resource for open source projects and education purposes. Come read about how we chose Tiki Wiki as our open sourced research project for everything about woodworking.
