Greeting, Robert and Adward...
I am not a company or firm, I just thought (and found) some sort of a "signature" for my "amateur" wooden things. Finally, I designed something both beautiful and characteristic of what I do, but it proved too complicated to draw by hand everytime, and it is beyond my scope to order it in metal form so it can be "branded" on the wood.
It has been a pleasant experience, looking through the internet and finding things, several people here gave me very good advice and ideas. I even tried to "sign" a couple of pieces.
In the end, I yielded to the centuries-old tradition of the anonymity of the carpenter, and found some beauty and profound philosophy on it. Have you ever thought who was the man who passed his fingers on the table you eat on, 10 or 50 years ago, to see if it was smooth enough or needed more sanding? When you saw an old and useless chair leg burning in a bonfire did you consider that some fellow many many years ago spent a lot of thought and energy to calculate angles and millimeters and now all his calculations and work are to vanish for ever? I find it very sweet, just as sweet as the necessity of death which transfers to some other organisms the means to give birth and carry on living, something in the circle of life. Whole civilisations vanished and nature has converted them to more life of all forms. I found it takes some courage to know that you can sign your makings like Picasso, but you decide to give them away anonymously on purpose, let the wood do the talking, and make this a tribute to the endless army of woodworkers that walked the Earth. I do not need a logo anymore.
