So I have some cherry veneer left over from a project, which I intend to ‘forge’. I’d like to get a feel for how little charring is possible when cutting at optimum power (full?) & speed (max?) ratio - whatever that may be for cherry).
The sheets are only 0.6mm thick. I accept that there would be some charring but with fast cuts on such thin material, is it a case of light sanding (a bit hard to do on such fragile sheeting…) or perhaps a wipe with some magic solution?
Has anyone here cut veneer with a laser?
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
