    I've got a stamp that says: "Whimsical Woods by Fred Baginski" that I use on the pieces it will fit on.
    My handwriting is so bad that if I used a pen people might think I was a doctor!

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

      I use a hot iron. I had it made with my name and Hand crafted by on it.

        I use a ball point pen before putting on the clear finish coat. A stamp wouldn't be considered a signature on the art or antiques market. Of course when it's an antique I'll be past caring, and as to art...well. I do think it means something to some customers to have a real signature.

          If you have a woodburning set you can use a writing tip to burn
          your name or initials on your work.

                I also use a fine point "Sharpie" of either black or brown between coats of finish. I also put the name of the project (if it has one), my signature and date on the back of the plywood or whatever.

                    signing my work

                    I use heat to transfer a photocopy of a logo.
                    The photocopy is in reverse, The ink comes out the right way when it is transferred.
                    The wood has to be smooth.

                      I have always signed my scroll saw work because when I'm done I am very proud of my accomplishments. On larger projects I have a large stamp that I heat with a torch. On my smaller projects I use a woodburning tool with a fine writers tip. I burn in the following: Hand Crafted By: My name, my addresss, my phone number and the date. I also lay one of the blades that I used in the project below my name and then put a generous bead of Contact cement over it so that the new owner of the plaque or project can see partially how the item was made. (everyone always comment on how small my blades are that I used. )

                        Awesome suggestion on the blade. I often wondered what should be done with old blades.

                          Signing your work

                          I started signing my intarsia work a few years ago. I desigend a Logo and reversed the image and printed several copies onto one sheet . Made copies on a Xerox copier. And when I need one it cut it from the sheet.
                          Then I sand the backing board very smooth, then tape one edge of the cutout logo and use a small iron to re-heat the ink. ( Press firmly ) The ink transfers right onto the wood surface and you can lift it off (gently, leaving the tapeed portion attached to be sure all of the logo 'printed' to the wood. After the logo is applied I let the surface cool and then apply a finish. The ink will NOT run or bleed.

                            I use a ultra fine Sharpie and put my name and the year like 06 and not the whole 2006 . I sometimes don't sign my work-depending on what it is -like a cross but I have one lady that insists that I sign what ever it is she gets.why I don't know but I figure that if it has my name on it then it is the best I can do..maybe it does make me try harder to be perfect on my pieces but heck -- thats just me.

After gluing them to the board, he drilled stainless screws through the lip into the board and made plugs to fill the holes. The board is 3/4” thick. Since he only has 4 large Bessy...

                                I remember Russel well. I think he went back to the days of Free4all.

                                FYI: I just completed an index of the Charity Ornament book from SSV and Birchbank designed quite a few ornaments.

                                Denny, you are correct, his name is Russell. While he may not have been here in years, he pops in at the Village forum from time to time. I just checked and he hasn’t been there since July. I would suggest that you send him a PM perhaps through the Village and see if you get a response.

                                I think his name is Russel. I checked and he was last on the forum in 2014. I had a request for one of his patterns. Fortunately I still had a copy. Anyone heard from him?
