So, I'm going to be making some crate lamps, barrels, et cetera, and I need to start branding wood with RUM and XXX. Maybe XXX. Most likely just RUM. And possibly AKU AKU, for my home bar.

At any rate, I'll be making myself a branding iron or two, and while I'm at it, I thought that some of you TC'ers out there might enjoy one as well, provided my construction is up to your snuff. They'll be made of steel, with high temp paint on the rod/back of the iron, and a basic wooden handle. They'll be up for sale on the Marketplace when they're done.

HOWEVER: I need your help choosing what font looks best. Please take a look at the ones below, and if you would kindly reply with which is your favorite, it would be appreciated. I'll keep this updated with pics.

Mahalo!

Or, if you have a better font suggestion, by all means, suggest it!

Number 3 has a more authentic look to me.

Second choice, #5.

No. 3, definitely, as the aged/worn look to the type fits tiki well. Nos. 4 & 5 are a bit too "collegiate" ala an Abercrombie & Fitch shirt!

Yeah I want one!
And Number three has that Trader Vic jungle bar look to it.
Also how big would these be?
A 1.5 inch tall size is what I could use.
If you could make the rum and the XXX be two separate irons
it would be better as you would have more options on using these.

Let me know when you are done.
Great idea!

Hale, remember that whatever you use will have softened edges caused by the burning and that a distressed font like #3 won't look the same. You got a plasma CNC to cut them out with? Sweet!

Mike is right. I should have mentioned, it'll be the outlines only.

They will be made separate for my own use, and can be made as one, two, or one individually for whomever else.

And Mike, yup. I make things with tons of different materials and processes everyday at work. 3d printing, laser cutting, wood working, metal working, milling, CNC plasma...

So much cool technology out there Hale and so cool you have access to it at work. Not only can you make bitchin' stuff for yourself, you can get paid to do it!

As a Respiratory Therapist I get free breathing treatments and all the snot I can carry in my pockets
