Default Re: etching, start to finish

Thanks Steve,
You are welcome to use the scene if you wish.
I have to tell you its the enjoyment of doing the work that is important to me, once its finished, I really don't have any interest in posessing them anymore.
I don't own any engraved items.
Recently I had a Ken Hunt engraved gold damascened Colt 1851 navy, but after I examined it for a year or so, I allowed a collector to add it to his collection.
I have a Gary Goudy stocked 416 rem mag built on a model 70 action, and a Lee Helgeland metalworked and stocked 458 win mag, also on a model 70. If I ever get some free time, I will have to engrave them. It would be fun to take one to Africa.
