  1. How long did it take to engrave? Its cool! What do you use to do the pressing? Is it a big hand-cranked roller?

    • Ryan, I worked on the engraving off and on with other projects so it is a little hard to tell how long it took. It is a slow and deliberate process that I enjoy. I do not doubt that someone who is skillful and dedicated and engraves often would be much more efficient than I am in terms of speed. I use a Wepplo etching press, manufactured in Bloomington, MN. It has a 18″ x 30″ bed and 5″ diameter geared roller.
