    The block of wood is fairly thick, and actually allows you to rest the stamp against it, nice and square and vertical.

    And I need to find a nice chunk of steel plate, I have a small depression in my bench from where I tried stamping a bit of copper - it didn't work well at all

    The gitd/reflective tags are going to be used as breadcrumbs, tied to branches to make finding my way back to the car safer (to mark diversions etc, when im out shooting rallying)

    The first couple I made I just pounded out on the concrete floor in the basement. I've since acquired a small steel plate/anvil for my bench.

    My 10yo thinks this tag, made by a friend from Wales, is the GREATEST tag ever! She is taking about 10 pics of it each day in various places. . . She has an awesome sense of humor!

    I was a little bored yesterday and looking for something handmade to gift so I did this:
    [​IMG]
    I'm going to use my dremel today to shape the spork into a tag shape and drill some holes in both. Then I'm not sure what I want to do with them. I was thinking masking with duct tape and cutting out a design. Then using the dremel to scribe the design. I wish I had a vise. I need to go borrow a few clamps from my brothers basement.

    Remember, big brother is watching
