Introduction: DIY Stamp

Made this whole project from junk laying about in my garage. Friends and family have been getting on me about not signing or branding any of my work so I thought I would make a quick stamp of the TL from my logo.

== Materials == Big Eraser: Traditionally handmade stamps are carved from blocks linoleum, but since i didn't have that I figured a big pink eraser might work. for more information on the photo transfer technique use checkout Steve Ramsey's tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zq2O66QGCwg

Carving Chisels: You can buy specialized tools for stamp carving but they basically amount to tiny V and U gouges so I just used the smallest ones I had. Although if you need to get much more detailed then the logo pictured it might be well worth picking up the real tools.

Scrap of wood: pretty anything will work, a lot of the work pictured could have been omitted if I had the right size fostner bit.

Drawer pull: Make, salvage, or buy a drawer pull or handle. Mine was from an old coffee table that was getting thrown out.

Thanks for watching
