I've been making a lot of chisels and other tools as of late - and selling
them as fast as I can make them (If you're interested have a look at
http://members.shaw.ca/mathewa/tools4sale.htm ). I'm going to start making
them on a more commercial basis and need to apply a makers mark. I've
looked into having a steel stamp made up that I would hammer into the red
hot tool steel - but this would probably cause too much bending and or
distortion in some of the tools so I've ruled that out and a laser image is
out of the question so if anyone has any ideas could you post them.
Did you see the Chippendale Slant Top Desk - I'm mulling over the idea of
making it in alumimun. I get the giggles everytime I try to imagine what it
would look like. Do you know of anyone who can anodize a grain pattern on
That would be pretty wild. I do like your aluminum turnings.
Regarding your giant chess pieces must've been a heckuva big lathe to turn
all that wood.
The whole setting looks very nicely concieved and well executed. Bravo!!...
as others have said acid etch may be the best way. the steel stamp is pretty
spendy too mine cost me 350 and it is a handheld one. stamping hot steel would
not be much fun. You would need a air or mechanical stamper if you stamped much
I used to work at a saw shop and did acid etching. it is pretty easy to do.

Nice work on the gateleg table. I didn't know what those were called but we
have a square version handed down from a couple generations past. It has
been relegated to side table status as it's nearly impossible to sit around,
as I'm sure you've discovered. ;-)
