Laser cut wood is versatile for a large range of applications. Some cuts cleaner and quicker than others so ask our advice for your requirements. Wood also engraves beautifully which is great for branding your wood products and signage, see more here.

Can’t see what you are looking for? You can supply your own materials. We can also cut large scale and thicker timbers with our 8′ x 4′ CNC machine.
