I am looking for a way to make or someone who is able to make a small stamp with which to mark some small hand made wooden items in relation to the Osberg ship re-creation which I help out at. This is the architypical 'viking' boat, if you have seen pictures of one or been to the meuseum in Oslo then this is the one.
Its a really interesting project involving much axe and tool research work- but i wont go into that too much here;
One of the spin offs i seem to have started is the making of small items from wooden offcuts to sell to assist the funding (essentially whittling while resting arms from swinging axes), and i thought having a stamp that can be heated and burned into these items would be almost like an official seal 'this came from the Osberg ship' type of thing.
Ideally it could be used to stamp leather too - although not sure of the practicallity of this.
Anyhow ideas please to how might i aquire a small stamp (with a styalised ship perhaps) for heating and burning into the wood - i am talking in the order of less than about 4mm x 8mm.
Ideas more than welcome!
