Despite the price, it would be fun to burn a unique mark on my projects. Has anyone here done this?

I've ordered it! It will take some time for Rockler to make the custom brand.

certainly a different approach .would love to see the results when you brand it.

This is the, I'll say unique, you may say weird, logo. I worked for 43 years as a geologist, aka "rock-licker" and so it just a geologist thing. There was a quote from St. Ronan's Well by Sir Walter Scott, about the Scottish geologists involved in road building.

One of my favorite quotes is from St. Ronan's Well by Sir Walter Scott:
"and some rin up hill and down dale, knapping the chucky stanes to pieces wi' hammers, like sae mony road-makers run daft--they say it is to see how the warld was made!" (Thank you Dr. David Kitts for your History of Science class!)

I like the brand CAS, though I feel you should also include the date with the mark. I always find somewhere on my pieces to discreetly add my makers mark, my initials burned in cursive and the year the piece was made.
We have had several queries over the years I have been on this site asking for information on a cane or stick, usually the age of the piece. I hope that after I am long gone at least whoever ends up with one of my pieces they will know when it was made even if they don't know who the maker MJC was!!

It probably wouldn't be a bad idea for me to start signing mine too. Since I do a bunch with the bark left on the shanks, maybe on the underside of the handle would work.
What areas do you guys think would be best for a maker's mark?

Perhaps you could remove the bark in a small rectangle for the stamp.
