COMMON MATERIALS

 
Sample of Bamboo Plywood for laser cutting or laser cut pieces

WOOD

  • 1/8” baltic birch plywood

  • 1/4” baltic birch plywood

  • 5mm bamboo plywood

    We can also work with a variety of other wood types, such as walnut or oak.

    Each wood type engraves differently, however most of the time, it engraves to be a dark shade of brown. When we work with wood, we put mask on the surface to protect it from burn marks.
