In order to prepare the wood for the blocks, it must be planed very smooth, so smooth that when two planed surfaces are put together, it will be difficult to separate them without slipping them along.
When the left half of the paper is on the block, the right half is first raised off the block and, in order not to create any wrinkles, rubbed with the left hand up and down gradually from the middle toward the right edge, slowly lowering the paper to the block with the right hand.
When the paper is pasted firmly on the wood, and while it is still moist, the top layer of the paper should be peeled off by rubbing the surface with the tips of the fingers, rolling the fibre of the paper into small rolls.

Practical experiments showed that, provided that the wood used was suitable for paving (although the species was not stated), in a reasonably well trafficked street the loss on one-sixteenth of an inch from a four-and- a-half inch thick block over a period of two-and-a-half years was quite acceptable.
As far as dealing with inclines was concerned it was reported that in London it was the practice to lay a row of blocks followed by an inch spline placed on the foundation between that of the next row, and the spaces filled with asphalt and small pebbles to give the horses a good grip.

 Block printing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Block printing has some advantages over cast type or moveable type -- for a language such as Chinese which has a very broad character set, block prints are much cheaper to produce for the initial run.
However, printing blocks are not very durable, and deteriorate very rapidly with use, requiring constant replacement which limits the possibility of large-scale print runs.
Printing blocks can, however, be made from a variety of materials such as wood, linoleum, rubber, or even potatoes.

 pfeil block cutters? - Wood Carving Illustrated Message Board
Block tools were originally designed for wood block carving when woodcuts were the standard for printing pictures.
Woodcraft markets Pheil "block tools" and "palm tools" as the same and calls them "palm handled block tools"; guess that pretty well sums up the "difference".
