There are holes all over my walls.
The keyblock was kiln dried cherry and held the detail pretty well although I had to use a scalpel with an #11 blade to carve out the small print. I printed the background block first to smooth out the paper for the keyblock with the type--which then printed more cleanly than if printed first.
