Our Equipment

Garden Fe‚Äčature

We use a sandblasting process which delivers detailed engravings onto various rock and stone surfaces. 

We employ two methods to generate stencils used in the engraving process. We usually use a computer generated design program which is connected to a magnum force cutting system giving spectacular results. For a more detailed surface etch a photo imaging process is utilized.
