My latest “goofing off in the shop” idea was to create something I could give with my cutting boards to people so that they could remember my shop name and matching website.

I am actually planning ahead on this one as I am working (sloooowly) on the website, and am just getting ready to order a branding iron with the name “Quilted Wood” on it, also the website name.
So when I get my branding iron I will burn my logo onto this mini cutting board keyring and give them with my boards kind of like a business card.

These are purpleheart and maple, in the true tradition of the Wood Whisperer board, and waxed with Howards Feed and Wax Finish. The actual dimensions are about 1” x 1 1/4”, which may be a little undersized for a branding iron mark, when I get my iron I will know for sure what size they need to be.

I thought I would share the idea if anyone was trying to think of some promotional pieces for their business. Feel free to borrow….

Really neat. Borrow I will. Will make some for the craft show. I think to small for branding iron. My B/I is 2 1/2”. How large do you make the glue up before you cut them out?

that is a really great idea, if the iron won’t fit maybe you could use a wood burning tool to sign it with.

Ken and Dudley-
Photobucket

I am really bad about writing things down as I am doing them, but here are the dimensions for first glue up- as best as I can recall-
2 X 10×1/16
2×10 x 1/8
2×10 x 1/4
1 of each in purpleheart, 1 of each in hard maple

The cut thickness for the second glue up I think was 3/16”
Each mini board is 3/8” thick.
All cuts were done on the band saw with a 1/4” blade.
Nice to be able to share with everyone.
Thanks,

Lisa

That’s a good plan! Here’s a thought – I’ve noticed that a lot of the branding irons include a border. You only need your name and url to fit. It might look OK if the border runs off the edges … Just an idea (not all ideas are good ones – you can decide)
