Writing Secret Messages on Your Projects with Woodburning Tools
posted on by
"Signing" a wood panel with woodburning tools The underside of a table, a back panel or inside a drawer are perfect places to leave a fun "hidden" message for others on your woodworking projects.

I like to leave a “secret” message on every piece of furniture I build. I find a place — usually a back panel or under a tabletop — to leave my note, using a woodburning tool. I include the date and current weather, a couple of snippets of world news, where the piece was built and, of course, my name. My only regret in leaving the surprise is that I’m not around to see the look on the owner’s face when they find it.
