Wood Laser Cutting

MDF, better known as supawood is the most widely used material in wood laser cutting. It is cut into anything imaginable including restaurant menus, indoor signs, wedding favours, jigsaw puzzles and Christmas tree decorations. Laser Creations can cut MDF up to 6mm thick. We prefer to supply the supawood as it needs to be the imported “yellow” supawood, and it has become increasingly difficult to source. Most merchants hold the “brown” locally manufactured wood which does not cut well at all leaving a burnt black edge and residue on the material. Supawood can be painted and this works best when a wood primer is applied first as the MDF is very absorbent. As you will see in some of the pictures above, the natural finish of the wood including the slight burn from the laser is very attractive and many clients prefer to leave the wood unpainted. We can cut thinner plywood boards. One of the challenges with this material though, is that it tends to warp while being stored and of course laser cutting relies on a precise distance between the lens that focuses the beam and the material which is being cut in order to allow a clean accurate cut. When it comes to solid wood items, we are unable to cut these. We do however achieve a great result when etching or engraving them. Common items that we work on are personalised  cheese boards popular as wedding and birthday gifts and solid wood hangers for a bride’s entourage.
