I want to mark the things I make so down the road someone will know
who to blame (or praise). I thought go simple and use a permanent

People that get/buy my pieces do not forget who built them, I suspect
that will hold true for you too. Going overboard to see to it that some
one that identifies your work long after you are gone are not going to
think much about the answer. Seems more than a signature is more work
than will be appreciated, IMHO.
The great US potter Warren Mackenzie stopped signing his work so that it
would encourage people to use the items rather than collect for
investment. Shoji Hamada didn't sign his as a sign of humility.
Ok, well I like to know the wood at least for turnings. And for gifts
the year can be nostalgic. Whether or not anyone knows it was me
is actually not relevant to me even though I titled this thread
as-if it mattered.
Many people like to know the wood type for things it seems.
Try selling someone a spurtle without telling them the wood type.
There's a reflexive "what kind of wood is this?".
