What is a good brand of burner to burn my business name into my cutting boards. Is there one brand that is better than the other one.

I only have one very old one, not even sure of the brand name, it works great.. but maybe consider something like this, for a wide range of products to start from. It is a start.

Look at the variety of branding irons in the Lee Valley catalog. The diamond willow furniture shop down my street has 3 of them.

Plan B: buy an 8” or 10” spike from a hardware store, the heads are 3/4” diameter. Use a Dremel and cutoff wheels to carve your own branding iron in the head of the nail. Add a handle, heat with a propane bottle torch. I find that every wood has a different charring temp = need a test piece. Mine is just RV, actually the mountainous region where I live and play.

What I use is a rubber stamp that I had made up at the local office supply store. It cost about $10.00. They will make them with any design you want on it. Cheap easy and you don’t have to wait to have it warm up. Good luck
