Default Pleasant Grove, Utah

I live in in Pleasant Grove, Utah, and would like to visit someone in the Salt Lake Valley to see engraving being done and maybe try doing it also. I would consider traveling outside the area.

I'm 68, but I think I can learn engraving.

Welcome and good luck.

I am in about the same boat as you are, about the same age, retired and adding engraving as a hobby. I am a woodturner that makes game calls, and have chosen engraving to try to enhance my duck calls. I am in no hurry, and don't want to spend the big dollars for the modern equipment. At this time hand pushing and a little hammering is about my limit. What happens with the future equipment desires, who knows.

I started this journey as an experiment to help me with my shallow relief woodcarving. The engraving designs are helpful and my ideas have started to come together as I mess up one piece of metal and wood at a time. When I get it all together my plans are on helping other callmakers get started in engraving and showing them the benefits of adding this to the art of their callmaking.

Hi Dogcatcher,
Making game calls sounds like a great hobby. I am a rifle hunter, and want to put lipstick on a couple of my pigs. Hehehe. I have a few old guns that I can engrave after I feel I have learned enough to start on something besides practice metal.
I have an engraving DVD, and a sketch book, so you are well ahead of me.
Thank you for the reply.
Gordon
