I got my ushers and groomsmen steak brands for the wedding, the handle was cheap pine, so I wanted to replace them. I don’t have a lathe so I squared pieces of Bubinga and double ran them over a round over bit to add curve and dimension.

Stuart, that is a great idea for a gift, where did you get the branding iron pieces?

I got them from steakbrands.com, but if I knew that they would be so simple I would have had a machine shop cut the letters out. I’m glad I found them, but realized in the end I could have made them for a 1/10th of the cost. They are still waiting on a leather strap to allow for hanging, but that is the brides job for the weekend, thanks for all the comments.
