Branding Iron *PIC*

Jack Guzman from Maine
Short explanation. Young family friend,still in high school,learning welding.He offered to make me a branding iron to sign my woodworking projects. I drew a sketch with the logo I wanted; CJ over XXX. Told him how it was used generally. He seemed to know what I had in mind so I let him go with it. A few weeks later he delivered this to me proudly. No charge,he loved doing it. So naturally I said it was fine and accepted the generous gift.
So now ,all I need is some cattle to try it out on.
I keep it hanging in my shop as a decoration.
That was about 10 years ago.I figured some of you might enjoy the story.
