DIY: MAKER STAMPING POST


This Stamping Post will help reduce noise and will absorb bounce or vibration resulting from the hammer’s impact. This will also maximize the depth and clarity of the hand-stamped characters on the token. 

Your local lumber store may vary in pre-cut lumber sizes available. If they don’t have the size you need pre-cut, most hardware supply stores will cut them to your desired size for free and it takes just a few minutes.

Due to the pre-cut lumber sizes found at most lumber stores, you may need to buy one 8ft long 4”x4” wooden post.

If you want to add feet to your stamping post, then you'll also need a 8ft long 2”x4” wooden post and have the hardware store cut them to the specified lengths below.

If you buy the 8ft long sections, it will allow you to make 3 stamping posts and should cost approximately $15-$30.


STAMPING POST DESIGN 1:
(NO FOOT BASE)
Materials:
  • One 4”x4” post cut to 29” in length (single upright structure to stamp on top of)

No other assembly or tools required.

 

STAMPING POST DESIGN 2:
(DUAL FOOT BASE)
Materials:
  • One 4”x4” post cut to 29” in length (single upright structure to stamp on top of)
  • Two 2” x 4” posts cut to 12” in length (two stabilizing legs at the base)
  • Four 2.5-3" screws 
  • A power drill

Instructions:
Position each 12” stabilizing leg at the bottom of either side of the 29” main post, making sure each stabilizing leg is parallel to the other. Secure each stabilizing leg to main post by drilling two screws into the outside of each stabilizing leg as shown in images below.

Stamping post with 2 stabilizing feet.

Drill in 2 screws to attach each stabilizing foot to the body.

Pro tip: If you plan on transporting your stamping post, we would not recommend putting more or bigger "feet" as it'll make it harder to put in your truck.

USING YOUR CUSTOM  MAKER STAMPING POST

Sit in a standard height chair facing your post, straddling it on both sides with your knees to keep the post steady. Place your metal round stamping base directly onto the top of your stamping post and proceed with creating your next piece!
