Planes, tanks, howitzers, Jeeps, etc. are laser etched onto Baltic Birch plywood. All of these images begin as photographs of the real military hardware, ©Paul Perrine, Killeen TX. After extensive software processing, the images are ready to etch onto wood. The larger the image, the greater the detail we are able to transfer to the wood image.

Laser Etched Military Hardware Coin Banks are engraved into Baltic Birch plywood, nominal thickness is 1/8" or 1/4" (dependent upon what is currently available from our supplier). Laser etching the surface of the wood causes the image to be burned onto the wood surface, creating an image similar to a greyscale or a black and white image. Over time, wood tends to darken as it ages from exposure to air and UV light, changing the appearance of the image over the coming years. The process of laser etching burns the image on the surface of the wood, laser engraving is a more extensive and time consuming process that actually burns away wood leaving a 3-D surface similar to being carved.
