Choose something meaningful to you, an inspirational phrase or family name.

Scale the engraving to enhance the appearance of the piece. If it is too large it may be overwhelming visually.

On darker woods keep the engraving simple so the details do not get lost. Select lighter woods for more detailed engraving.

Consider adding a glaze to enhance the design of the engraving.
