I want to make wood name tags for my cub scout pack. Any suggestions on how to engrave them? Is it a project I should attempt?

Might be faster with a wood burner rather then straight engraving unless you’re quick with carving knives. Either way it is a neat idea. If using wood burners you could cut and sand the pieces and let the kids do their own names and make it fun for them.

Check out a local trophy shop, if you cut out and sand the blanks, the price shouldn’t be too high.

I would cut out the names on my scroll saw.

I would use my “Dremel Tool”, various kinds of tips that make engraving in wood quite eay.

I second the wood burning tool. Gives a rustic look
