laser cutting Wood


Whether you need a wood sign for your business or wood etchings for an independent project, our wood laser engraving service should do the trick. We cut up to 1/4″ and etch on anything that fits inside our machines.  Wood will come out with darkened edges, it may be necessary to offset your cuts to accommodate for any finish sanding your project may require.

Results may vary from wood to wood. Running a sample piece is always a good idea to make sure you’re getting the results you had in mind.

We can source 1/4″ plywood, MDF as well as a limited selection of hardwoods.

Plywood

Plywood comes in a variety of thicknesses, qualities, treatments, and colors. With alternating grain direction it can be an ideal choice for parts that may have thin areas or need gluing.

Hardwood

Hardwoods are a great option.  From blonde woods like Maple and Basswood, to darker woods like Walnut and Mahogany and everything in between, our lasers can cut thin veneers as well as sheets up to 1/4″ thick.

MDF

MDF is fine composite particle board.  It’s easily sanded, painted and glued. Because it is a composite, it tends to have fewer issues with warping and cupping which makes it ideal for our lasers.

Reclaimed Lumber

Aged and Reclaimed wood can produce one of a kind results.  We’ll have to inspect the pieces to make sure we can work with them effectively.
