Step 2: Laser process

Set the laser parameters like indicated below. Keep in mind that these parameters are set up for a speedy 360 80W, if using another machine you may have to adapt them. Put the wood into your Trotec laser, engrave and cut the different pieces. For a more exotic look, we decided to use two different types of veneers.

Laser Parameters:

Color Process Power (%) Speed (%) ppi/Hz
black engraving CO2 80 50 500
red cutting CO2 100 1,0 1000

Info:

  • Wood is a natural product. It characteristics can vary. We recommend to test the parameters before you produce the work piece.

Step 3: Cleaning and assembly

Clean the cut pieces with a damp cloth. All you need for the assembly are the wooden parts and a little bit of dexterity. The individual pieces are put together one by one resulting in a finished wine box.


The video shows you how to assembly the box.
