Laser engraving wood

There are some tricky aspects to working in wood. Since it is not totally flat, cut the stock just large enough for your piece, then stabilize with magnets. It can move with the engraving motion/vibration. Masking tape would have helped with burn marks/smears, but they can be removed to the desired degree with light sanding. I wanted to leave a little bit of the burn scars, I think they look neat.
