A buddy of mine left a piece of alder wood at my house a while back. He is a good woodworker with a small shop in his garage.

I used the laser cutter at TechShop.

In CorelDraw  I opened a standard template with the right dimensions and color profile(RGB).
The process is really easy with something as simple as this.

I selected some text that would have a good amount of detail to show off the capabilities.
The text needs to be black for a raster etch.
I validated that the size was right and the placement of the material was good in the machine.
I used the hardwood material preference and entered the material thickness.
I clicked print and went over to the Cutters Control Panel and check the placement and size one more time.

Everything looked go so I hit print.

Check out the Video.

I made this at TechShop. http://www.techshop.ws
