To start, we have cherry table tops that have been pre-finished with a base coat of stain (less any finish coat)
The laser than cuts the graphic @ .030 to .050 in depth into the cherry table top.
After the graphics are completely machined, we then begin to fill the voids with colored polymers.
The laser than melts the polymer right into the wood table top.
The process will be repeated as many times as needed to complete the artistic affect desired.
Once complete the top will be sanded with 400 grit sandpaper, and the artwork/stain will be coated with lacquer.
When the table top is assembled with the rest of the base components, we have a beautiful piece of furniture.
The wonderful thing about the laser engraving technique is the repeatable results of the artwork if you need to produce multiple items for an organization.
