    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.

                                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
