Wooden Beard Combs

Step By Step Tutorial

The designer Andrei Bulai, who proudly owns his own full, luscious beard, has created these fantastic wooden beard combs using Trotec wood. This simple tutorial also includes the downloadable graphic file and laser parameters.


You Will Need:

  • 3mm MDF, available here
  • Additional material to cover the rest of the work surface (e.g. spare paper)

Machine Used:


  • After you've placed the material into the laser machine, cover the remaining work area with pieces of paper. This will ensure maximum vacuum suction.
  • We suggest using a 2" lens that will be able to make a nice, clean, quick cut.

Step by Step

Step 1: Create the Design Layout

Download the comb template. There are three different designs to choose from, and you can create the size you like based on the beard size! Place the wood on the work surface and cover the rest of the surface with other material (e.g. paper) to ensure maximum suction.

Print Settings:

Process Mode Resolution Cut Line
Standard 500dpi None
Halftone Others
Colour Enhanced Geometries, Inner Geometries First

Step 2: Engraving process

Place the Dark Blue LaserPaper into your Trotec laser engraving machine and focus on its surface. Create the parameter settings. Please note that the parameters can vary depending on the laser machine you are using and its available laser power.

Step 3: Post-Processing

After completing the laser cutting and engraving steps, very carefully remove the comb from the rest of the wood, ensuring you don't snap the thin, delicate pieces. Clean the comb with a damp cloth, and your trendy beard comb is ready for use!
