Not sure if this is the right forum for this, but for the woodworkers out there that brand their workpieces, I would like to know where they got the brands? I would like to burn my logo into my projects. Anyone got a source I should try?

Woodcraft sells them. You can get your own logo etc for extra cost.

Yeah I saw that woodcraft sells them, I just didn’t see any that I could send them an image and they send me a brand. It is a custom logo, probably should have made that clear in my post.

Take a look at I have never purchased from them, but they seem to have a nice selection.

I bought mine from I think, many years ago and it still works fine.

I purchased the drill press version, that way I can set up a fence and accurately brand a number of items in the same location and it saves time.

This is the cheapest completely custom branding iron I could find online:

Right now I just have a “handcrafted by” standard rockler model, but someday I may order one of these.

There are several that do custom work. However, the more custom the more it costs.

I’ve seen the WC irons. I think I would also like a date stamp.

I met Terry Desilets at a show a couple of weeks ago and he is a super nice guy and makes a great product which is reasonably priced.

Highly recommended.
