Hello Woodworkians! Man, it's been a long time since I was around here, life really gets ahead of you sometimes.

Today I'd like to share with you a project which is not entirely woodworking, but still woodworking related, how to make a branding iron. Many woodworkers like to mark their products, and brands are definitely a popular way of doing so. Here you can learn how to make your own branding iron, pretty much from scratch, and not using so complicated tools to do so. It even has a bit of woodworking squeezed in there for making the handle of the branding iron.

Watch the video and hope you guys enjoy!

Hopefully there won't be as long of a hiatus until I'm back again with more projects, I have another nice one which I've been dying to share, but I haven't edited the video yet.

I purchased an electric one from Rockler with the date option. Easy as pie to "sign" my work.

Travico, be sure to post when you do!

woodchux, safe, and branding irons? There's no such thing! Haha! Glad you liked it!

Quo Fan, indeed, but the cost is also a bit higher. Also, I have this thing about rather making stuff than buying them, if I can. Kind of a personal challenge.

Steve, it's basically a video taking you through the entire process of making the branding iron. If you can watch YouTube videos you shouldn't have a problem watching the video. You can watch it directly at YouTube at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7yo6hWKTo-g

Stick, BRANDING!

I bought mine, because I can't draw a straight line with a computer.
