Different furniture makers sign their work in different ways. Although I haven’t been consistent, recently I’m adding my logo to a concealed surface. Now is a good time to do this while I have separate pieces right before assembly and finishing.
I first print out my logo and tape it to the wood.
It’s then a matter of stabbing the lines with correctly sized chisels. Remove the paper and done!
I actually don’t like signing my work. A lot of the period furniture I reproduce wasn’t signed, and I’m certainly no better than the original maker.
I have a brand but have been experimenting with a certain chisel stroke.
I think it adds a little uniqueness to your work.
