In this blog post, we will discuss the process of turning your photos into wood art, as well as some tips on how to make the most of your finished product.
Can you engrave a picture on wood?
Yes, you can! And the results are absolutely stunning. Whether you want to engrave a landscape, a portrait, or even just a simple logo, wood is the perfect material to use.
The first step is to choose the right wood for your project. If you’re looking for a rustic look, then we suggest using reclaimed wood. This type of wood has a lot of character and natural imperfections that will really add to the overall effect of your finished product. If you’re going for a more polished look, then we recommend using maple or cherry wood.
Once you’ve selected the right type of wood, it’s time to start designing your project. The great thing about laser-engraved wood art is that you can be as creative as you want. You can use high resolution photos, graphics, text, or even a combination of all three. Just be sure to keep the design simple enough so that it will fit on the wood surface.
Once you’ve finalized your design, it’s time to start engraving!

There are a few things to keep in mind when engraving your photo onto wood. First, you’ll want to make sure that the image is high resolution. This will ensure that the finished product looks crisp and clear.
Second, be sure to use a vector graphic file rather than a bitmap file. Bitmap files tend to result in a blurry image, while vector files will give you a sharp and clear engraving.
Finally, always test your design on a piece of scrap wood before starting on your actual project. This will help you to avoid any mistakes and ensure that the finished product looks exactly how you want it to.
Once you’ve completed all of these steps, it’s time to start engraving! We recommend using a laser engraver, but a CNC router will also work. Just be sure to set the speed and depth of the cut according to the type of wood you’re using.
The great thing about laser-engraved photo on wood is that it’s incredibly versatile. You can use it to commemorate a special event, to showcase your artwork, or just to add a touch of personality to your home décor. So what are you waiting for?
