Introduction: Engraved Cutting Board

Picture of Engraved Cutting Board

My wedding anniversary is on February 14th, yep Valentines Day. So this year is my 5th anniversary to my beautiful wife, 5th year is traditionally wood for a gift. I made this @ Techshop

I am a member @ Techshop Chandler, and have access to several very cool equipment and tools. So I thought lets laser engrave a cutting board.

I found a graphic with all the scribble words, so in Corel draw I filled a heard shape with the words graphic. Thats how that was done, easy if you know graphic software, me it took several trys.

I setup the laser cutter, @ Techshop, for engraving wood. Loaded the graphic, positioned the board and hit go.

Very cool project and my wife loved it.

This looks great! I have been wondering, do you have to treat a wooden cutting board after etching it?

I had that same question, and I found this guy's instructable. https://www.instructables.com/id/100-Food-safe-home-made-wood-finish/
