    I am still honing my skills but once I have the confidence, I plan to engrave mostly knives. I've been riding motorcycles for 37 years and hope to do some various motorcycle parts also.

    Additionally, I have a lot of ideas to engrave various things I possess. Silver items like pill boxes and cigarette cases. I have done a bit of checkering on ferules of old tools and plan to do some floral patterns on brass and steel knobs.

    That being said, at this point in time I have predominantly been engraving practice plates.

    If it's got a shinny metal surface, look out, I'm ready to make art on it!

    I have engraved on most of the media listed on the poll, but, due to influence from a friend who is an artist, she convinced me to try making my engraving into wall art, so we are on a print making endeavour, we printed off a practice plate and it transfered very well, so now I am in the middle off doing a real plate, the image is finished, currently doing the scroll work border. I am kind of winging it though, so if anyone has suggestions feel free to chime in. I will post the finished piece when it is completed.

    Cool Poll! I've done ONE gun and ONE nickel so far, does that qualify?

    Doorknobs
    They make great practice pieces and people actualy like them.
    I think every engraver should think about engraving their doorknobs, its the first thing people touch when they come into your house. I feel engraving is as much about touching as it is visual. Have ever noticed when you show people your engraving they cant help but touch it?

    How about an "other" category for car parts, pipe wrenches and fire bells....

    Default What do you engrave?

    Mostly I'm a scrimshander, but I have this urge to work metal.
