Thinking about a mark/stamp for my work

Yes, I got the idea from Chrisand thought it was cool.  He had a stamp made of some dividers which has become his identifying mark.  I thought I’d come up with an identifying mark, perhaps of a tool I made.  I’ve made a dovetail saw and a panel gauge; so using those as a mark and then, perhaps, adding my blog handle to help make the stamp unique.  Here’s a couple for consideration:

Dovetail Saw
Panel Gauge
This gives a little bit of an idea of what it would look like.
Here it is with out the Logo.  Better?

Ever thought about doing this?  Any lessons learned?

  1. This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time. Honestly, I never mark my work and not because I don't want too but instead I just haven't figured out HOW I want to mark it. I read the aricle that Chris posted and liked the idea… maybe I could do the symbol I use on my site? Ok…still not sure… 🙂

  2. Yes Chris tempted me too. I just haven't thought of a good logo yet. I like your approach. I like the panel gauge idea. Everyone seems to go with a plane or saw, so the panel gauge is more unique.Mike

  3. Ha! I thought you had MADE the dovetail saw and the panel gauge and slathered your slogan all over them. ("Is She kidding?") Then I read Mike's comment and scrolled back up…Jim B

  4. Well .. I did make both the saw and panel gauge and photo shopped the logo on top. I haven't settled on putting my "slogan" on it, but it's not hard for me to imagine it with out it. And w/o it might look better .. hmmmm.

  5. Lol… Same here."Good luck trying to stamp 'She Works Wood' onto the front edge of the panel gauge like that!" was something along the lines of what I was thinking…Such a detailed image AND the text might get make the stamp get a bit muddled… I'd probably go with one or the other, myself.It is something I've been pondering for a while (since Chris talked about his first "C.SCHWARZ" stamp from the same company).
