Blank Transom Name Boards

Does anyone know where I can get a blank timber,(or very good synthetic) traditional looking, scroll type transom name board?

The plan is to add my own lettering.

I'm removing the one that is on the boat, and can do it carefully and re-use it, or brutally and get a replacement.
The screws are probably going to have to be drilled out because they are stubborn and in bad shape.
Either way I will need an additional one to go above the transom windows. "Wind" above the windows and "Wanderer" where the current board is.

All suggestions appreciated.

Vic

Re: Blank Transom Name Boards

any traditional wooden boat builder should be able to make one up out of teak with a band saw and router,the board might need laminating from several thin layers to fit the curve on the transom.

though it might be cheaper to fly to hong kong or taiwan and have one hand carved!

I'm too goofy for words at times. It really worked for me as a teacher, but a hard habit to give up.

I have seen guys doing this kind of work at craft fairs. Here's a commercial guy with beautiful work: Carved Name Boards - by Designs & Signs located in Maryland.
