We specialize in milling unique orders on Lodge® Cast Iron skillets for functionality or display only.
We are excited to mill the perfect creation for you!
These skillets make the perfect gift!
Each skillet can be custom designed,
use your imagination!
We not only engrave these skillets for home decor purposes, we can also season them so you can still use them for cooking!
We start by throwing each skillet on a lathe to smooth out the bottom. After a few turns, and a light sanding, the skillet bottom is flat and ready to be milled.
We currently have two CNC milling machines for engraving each order. We started with a Bridgeport, and recently added a Tormach to the shop.
After millling the perfect design, the skillet is then lightly sanded , and either sprayed with a protective polyurethane coating, or seasoned with two coats of cast iron seasoning to make it functional for cooking or baking.

Our Seasoned For use or Functional option:
Living in a rural western community, where there are more cows than people, we wanted to create something unique for the hardworking ranchers.
Our initial idea was to start engraving brands on skillets for local ranchers and farmers...hence the name Branded Iron!
We now engrave more than just cattle brands, though those are still fun to create! We believe the sky is the limit, and if you can dream it, we can mill it!
It all started with a rusty pan.
Now, we use new Lodge
Cast Iron skillets.
