Hi guys i am currently searching for someone that is trustworthy (1) and capable (2) of rendering scrimshaw work or either laser engraving on some duck call barrels of mine. I am in the process of making some custom calls for a customer and he desires to have full names of some friends on the calls followed by his thanks to them.

Is this something that some of you guys up here are capable of executing or would you by chance be able to direct me to a good solid source of this type of service?

The work would be done on clear Red Maple woods with approximate 1/8” high lettering.

I will certainly be willing to share more details with the individual rendering the work in regards to specifics via either a phone call or either email.

Thanks for suggestions.

Chris

yeah, not wanting to do that, i would rather do business with a woodworker from some of the forums i frequent. Plus it is too inconvenient to drive to and fro, bouncing around to trophy shops looking for someone to do such a job, takes away from shop time. The postal service allows for a lot of time saved.

I’ll keep looking around there is someone out there that does this kind of thing up here i am certain.

I do that sort of thing. I’ll take it offline with you.

I have found someone to assist me guys and i appreciate all of the responses here-to-for. I guess others could chime in with additional names and contact info of others that render like services should anyone else be searching this forum for same they would locate the postings with said info for their benefit.

just a thought.

Take care guys, chris

i have not been here for awhile so I missed the post. We have a small CNC machine shop in SW Florida and we could have cut/engraved any lettering into whatever surface you might have.
