Custom Tool Logos

I take a lot of pictures of projects in my shop to document progress and show off my work. Sometimes a tool or a peg board full of tools is visible in the shot. I thought it would be good branding to have my logo and business name on some of them. I LOVE the look of this!

Huh, yeah those are nice and deep.

I wonder how they’ll feel in hand over a long build process?

Yeah, and if they get caught they could chip. Maybe you could fill them with epoxy? They would be protected and feel better in your hand?

But I love the look of them; they turned out beautifully.

They look deep but you really don’t feel a difference at all. If it was bothersome I could back fill it with epoxy but for me it really isn’t an issue.

Have used a small mallet and fret hammer but your guitars must need some serious adjustments during a build. :wink:

Ha, yes, most jobs only call for the small hammers. The others are for when gentle persuasion has failed.

I played with some glow in the dark powder. It has a lot of potential. This was a sloppy first try.

That looks really amazing! …but I doubt you work in the dark very often…

Looks really sharp!

I was going to make a snarky reply like “those look like hammers to me” but didn’t. Aren’t you proud of me? I’m the picture of self-restraint.

Oh yeah! Marketing on the sly is definitely a good use of your tools :smiley:

The glow in the dark looks very cool, I think the fact that it filled in cracks in the handle actually adds!

Looks good with and without a fill.

Now you can find who “borrowed” your tools in the dark.

Great idea. Thanks for sharing.

Speaking of which… I mixed dark blue and purple and they separated in the inlay and turned purple on one side and blue on the other.

Great idea for getting your name into your photos. And looks really good.
