    For pieces that will sit on a flat surface, I just sign, date, and number with a permanent marker. It seems to work for me and as mentioned...inexpensive.

    I use a Razor Tip burner with a medium writing tip to sign ( my initials) on every piece I do.

    Take a look at horticultural supply houses. They often sell blank metal label tags.
    Various sizes and shapes. You write on them with a TC vibropencil.

    As a grad student long ago, I used them to mark experiments done on apple tree branches.

    I grow grapes now. I can't remember what I planted after 15+ years.
    Just because the leaves and stems look different does not mean I can recall what they are.
    So I made aluminum weatherproof tags to hang on the trellis.
    Easy to find in the winter and spring, harder in the summer jungle.

    For my wood carvings, I used a Dremel and cutoff disks to carve steel branding irons in nail heads.
    A 10" spike has a 3/4" diameter head. Handles and then heated with a bottle torch.
    You can burn through any finish, too.

    I think that Lee Valley has a set of number punches that you could use to sequence your works.
    I have far more trouble trying to recall who got which carving and where it might be now.

    Sorry I do not know about the metal on the bottom. But what about signing your name and date them? It is easy to do and a lot cheaper and tons easier to apply? Just a thought...

    Custom Labeling work

    I have been carving for a few years now, slowly accumulating my children's inheritance.....hopefully. As my pieces continue to grown in number, I have the desire to label them. In my mind, I want something metal to place on the bottom that numbers them in order of completion. Anyone have any ideas where to locate such items? Thank you
Working...
