Step by step

wooden block laser etching
Step 1

Step 1: Import/create design template

Import our design template into your graphics program and adapt it to the size of your wooden block.


We made the engraving border of the graphic a little bit bigger than the actual size of the wood beam to make up for any size differences of the wood.

Step 2: Laser process

Send the laser job to the machine.


power 50%, speed 100%, 500 dpi, Air Assist on, z-offset 6 mm, HQ mode (advanced settings)


Select these two options in JobControl® to get the best cutting results.

  • 500 dpi
  • Black and white

Important: Laser parameters can vary depending on the machine and laser power you use.


To get the exact starting position, measure the middle of the block and move laser there. Then snap the middle of the job to the laser

Step 3: Post-processing

The material requires no cleaning after engraving. Once you have finished engraving on all four sides, fix the candle holder on top of the wooden block and insert the candle. You can also put other items like a bowl on top of the wooden block. Your creativity is the only limit.
