Make presents unique: wood engraving
For centuries, various tools have been used to make unique and individual pieces of furniture, accessories, or even glass to give them a special character. One of the most common methods for this process is engraving. It can personalize all sorts of things, and it also symbolizes the effort and therefore the love behind this time-consuming procedure.
Most people want wood engraved. One explanation for this is that it is a soft and natural material. For that reason, it is also a very popular gift. It also has a unique design that can be perfectly completed with an engraving.
The right technique
When engraving wood, there are several industrial, but also hand-crafted approaches:
Less used by companies than by individuals providing their service, the thermal engraving is done with heat. Here, especially a lot of flair is required. The process often takes several hours, depending on the complexity. Used for this purpose is a burning tool, such as an alembic. Beforehand, however, the desired pattern is transferred to the piece of wood which will be engraved. Mostly this is done with a pencil drawing. After that, the alembic is heated and the sketched pattern is traced.
Engraving with a laser
Engraving with a laser is the most common industrial method of wood engraving. Therefore, it is not, as in the printing of objects, a laser printing, but a laser marking. They are long-lasting, waterproof, indelible and therefore permanent. Most of the time CO2 lasers are used for this process. The machine heats up the area that must be engraved so that the wood changes their color at this area. However, this happens so fast that you can’t see it with your bare eye, because the method of laser engraving is usually very fast. Within a few seconds, depending on the size, the piece of jewelry is completely individualized.
Also, we at BeWooden use lasers to personalize our products. In this video you can get a brief insight into our inventor’s workshop where our creative pieces of jewelry are created:
