Laser-cut? Could be wood of your choice, acrylic, or anodized aluminum.

You might contact a friend of mine + fellow metal worker. He builds signs on his plasma table. Usually the filagree cut outs that one sees at entrance gate ways. He has done quite a few of the veteran or cowboy kneeling at the cross + has done several for charity as well. A great guy. His name is Jim Sites + his # is 512-799-0785.

We can do it on a 3 axis router/engraver. Specify font,size,no. of letters, and type of plaque base metal. IE. brass, silver, copper, SS, etc. Also shape, IE. simple rectangle, rounded corners or scalloped corners. We'll give you a quote.

Go to a store that sells trophies to your local high school sports teams - they will have everything needed and you can discuss what you want with respect to size and style.

What I have learned on AR, since 2001:
1. The proper answer to: Where is the best place in town to get a steak dinner? is…You should go to Mel's Diner and get the fried chicken.
2. Big game animals can tell the difference between .015 of an inch in diameter, 15 grains of bullet weight, and 150 fps.
3. There is a difference in the performance of two identical projectiles launched at the same velocity if they came from different cartridges.
4. While a double rifle is the perfect DGR, every 375HH bolt gun needs to be modified to carry at least 5 down.
5. While a floor plate and detachable box magazine both use a mechanical latch, only the floor plate latch is reliable. Disregard the fact that every modern military rifle uses a detachable box magazine.
6. The Remington 700 is unreliable regardless of the fact it is the basis of the USMC M40 sniper rifle for 40+ years with no changes to the receiver or extractor and is the choice of more military and law enforcement sniper units than any other rifle.
7. PF actions are not suitable for a DGR and it is irrelevant that the M1, M14, M16, & AK47 which were designed for hunting men that can shoot back are all PF actions.
8. 95 deg F in Africa is different than 95 deg F in TX or CA and that is why you must worry about ammunition temperature in Africa (even though most safaris take place in winter) but not in TX or in CA.
9. The size of a ding in a gun's finish doesn't matter, what matters is whether it’s a safe ding or not.
10. 1 in a row is a trend, 2 in a row is statistically significant, and 3 in a row is an irrefutable fact.
11. Never buy a WSM or RCM cartridge for a safari rifle or your go to rifle in the USA because if they lose your ammo you can't find replacement ammo but don't worry 280 Rem, 338-06, 35 Whelen, and all Weatherby cartridges abound in Africa and back country stores.
12. A well hit animal can run 75 yds. in the open and suddenly drop with no initial blood trail, but the one I shot from 100 yds. away that ran 10 yds. and disappeared into a thicket and was not found was lost because the bullet penciled thru. I am 100% certain of this even though I have no physical evidence.
13. A 300 Win Mag is a 500 yard elk cartridge but a 308 Win is not a 300 yard elk cartridge even though the same bullet is travelling at the same velocity at those respective distances.

When I get bugs all worked out from my tattoo business I was thinking about branching out into engraving.


Actually, I just wanted to point out this thread is over two years old. Also, I had member here "Lapidary" engrave (machine engrave) a stethoscope head for me a few years ago and he did an excellent job.


for every hour in front of the computer you should have 3 hours outside

I recall reading about a lawsuit brought by a biker to a tattoo parlor when the "artist" was supposed to write "Satans Slaves" on his back but came out, "Stan's Slave".
