Our Bear Den is going to build some bluebird boxes for the local wildlife refuge as one of our Baloo the Builder projects. They will remain unpainted but I thought it would be cool to brand the cub scout logo and our pack number into them with a hot branding iron. Internet search has produced no existing products. Anyone done this or know of a source?
Sounds like it could be a really cool idea. I’m not sure whether or not there’s a licensed source for a BSA logo branding irons, though. I tried asking my local scout shop (SoCal) when a similar question came up in another forum, and they looked at me like I was crazy.
There used to be a FDL branding iron available in the Scout Shop but I don’t think they sell them anymore.
You know, @ZacharyMagnusson, you might try reaching out to merit badge counselors for Leatherworking in your area. They may have/know of a source for branding irons, since that’s sometimes a design component in leather work.
Your council will have a list, and they may even have a searchable one online. In theory it’s in Scoutbook, but unless you are also a troop leader, you can’t display the list in Scoutbook, I believe.
Pretty sure that branding Cub Scouts violates the GTSS.
… oh, you mean branding the bird houses… nvm
