You've got a very interesting idea. I want to see a picture after it's done.
Like Bengraver said, I don't think I'd tackle that myself, unless you've got some experience carving steel.
It shouldn't be too difficult, it would certainly be possible with a Demel tool; but I'd want to practice carving the heads of a few 1/2" machine bolts first.
Please let us know what you are going to do, and if you do it yourself, take pix during your breaks.
