  • name plates for woodburning?

    I really like the name plates many of you have to mark your carvings. where would one buy these and are they really expensive?

    I have used them for different occasions. I find them at any good trophy shop. They are not expensive. Most jeweler's will also make them up but charge a lot more.

      Oh... I mean the things that you use to burn your name into the carvings.

        Lee Valley is just one of several places that have branding irons, either stock or with your custom printing. Some of them, you heat with a torch, some are electric. In no case are they cheap.

        With everything else at hand, I bought some 10" iron nails ($0.25 each?) and designed a brand in reverse. Flatted the nail head surface, they're about 3/4" diameter. Then I tranferred the design and carved the steel with a Dremel and some cutoff disks (do some serious dust collection.) I heat that with a propane torch and brand all of my kitchen tools and carvings = RV (what else?)
