Wood is a popular material for toys. Can you laser cut and engrave any wood?
Since wood is a natural material, take care to consider factors similar to the density and the resin content of the wood you are processing. Soft woods, resembling balsa, require less laser power and can be cut more quickly. Hardwood, on the opposite hand, is denser thus it requires more laser power. For MDF, which consists of affixed wood fibers, we tend to suggest using compressed gas.
