August 9, 2018 – Laser Engraving by Tim of Woodcraft

Tim from Woodcraft discussed some of the applications the laser can do with engraving and design.  If you have something you would like to have engraved, it is best to bring a sample board to test the laser cutting on that substrate.  The laser at Woodcraft can cut up to 3/4″ thick.  Thicker materials just may take longer.  They can engrave almost any material.   Acrylic and glass will work, even the stainless steel insulated cups.
The laser can engrave some very fine detail.  Photographs need some contrast to work well.
Tim gave a demonstration of the laser which is behind the library in Woodcraft.
