Maker's Mark is small UK company specializing in small production runs of brass & stainless steal name plates specifically for custom made furniture and cabinetwork.

After giving up on my search for such a maker I came across the name in the back pages of Fine Woodworking. When I mentioned it on the Australian Woodwork Forums, people (including Mark Aylward from The Solid Wood & Furniture Company) were overall very positive.

The above design is an example from their site I liked the most. Modifying it to fit my own purposes we came up with the following four (25×1mm and 35×1.5.) In the end I decided to order 30 of the 25mm with capital letters at a cost of 64 pounds (delivered.)




Alternatives to namely your furniture are hot brands, custom punches, pyrography, and pens/pencils.

Interesting. I thought Makers Mark was just a Kentucky Bourbon. http://www.makersmark.com

As I am slowly bowing out of furniture and specialising in smaller item.. a hot brand works for me… but that said I like the Mark you have decided on…A bargain at about AU$5.00 each. will keep this in mind…

I’ve noticed the brand on your pieces. Looks good. I think it’s the way to go with your production style. Would be more cost effective and perhaps suits your style better as well.

I had noticed the bourbon brand when I googled them. Small world. But alas, no bourbon here.
