Laser Engravings on wood pieces


So far just some images I found online laser engraved on wood and cork.



Hi @nwestwind

Doug the newbie here, well done, it is great fun. At some stage I am going to have a go on acrylic.

Keep having fun



Hey @doug I just happen to have a bunch of frosted acrylic from some LED projects I’ve been working on I look forward to trying it too, but I’ll likely need to wait till I can find a better way to vent the fumes. I’ve already tried leather and it makes my apartment stink of burning hair. The laser on wood is great, smells like I have a fireplace at home :smiley:

I wish the laser was stronger, I really want to engrave metal! If someone finds a hack/mod for that please share :smiley:



I forgot to mention that you should have a look at this video of a guy using a Snapmaker to laser acrylic.



I cannot seen to engrave wood. I can get it to work on cardboard, but not on wood. What settings did you tweek to get it to properly burn wood?


Make sure to properly set the laser’s focus, then at 70% and higher it will definitely have the power!

I am lasering this photo image as I type onto 2mm plywood… several hours still to complete

and from the Snapmaker



Questions: where do you get your wood?

Would this work?


These will work; I have used similar squares. If you look around you will find 80mm and 100mm squares, round coasters , square coasters with round corners… there are many sources of wood available.


hello everyone, could anyone use the laser at 125x125 mm or i’m the only one who needs to reduce the images?


Theoretically you could, but you will need to find an alternate way to secure the material you are etching.
