What Is Laser Cutting & Engraving Wood?

Laser cutting and laser engraving are digital making methods available online from Ponoko.

Laser cutting is a subtractive manufacturing technology that uses a high-power laser beam to cut flat-sheet materials, such as plywood, bamboo, MDF and other wood. A computer directs this laser to follow the cutting line provided in your digital design. The high-precision laser vaporizes a cut line through the wood, leaving a 90-degree high-quality cut-edge finish.

Laser engraving wood is similar, but instead of using the laser beam to cut through the wood, it engraves the surface of the wood sheets. Following the engraving line or area in your digital design, the laser burns away a thin layer of the wood surface, creating a precise edge and exposing the unique wood grain that lies beneath.

You can laser cut and engrave designs for your custom wood products using .
