Signing your work?

Kevin Gerstenecker
>I was curious about signing our Turnings. I the past, I have always used a fine tip Sharpie marker. What do others find to be the best, most permanent method.......sign before or after the finish is applies, before or after Buffing, or sign after the turning is complete. I have always signed mine after it is completed. While I have noticed some fading, the Sharpie seems to dry right away, and even on Beall Wax Buffed bowl, it doesn't seem to want to rub off. I was just wondering what the "rule of thumb" was regarding "autographing" our work. Thanks in advance for any and all ideas and suggestions!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year!
