Everybody loves a coaster! Ain’t nothing like kicking off your life together knowing that the coffee table will not have watermarks! Nice job! The graphics and fonts are very nice -especially the second from the right.

Very nice! Love the way cork looks once it’s engraved, and these are all very well designed!

So how do you get it dark like ink like that?? Sorry I’m new to the game & want to know before I receive my glowforge next week. TIA

Per forum guidelines, you can’t discuss settings for non-Proofgrade material in this forum, only in Beyond the Manual.

If you search there, you’ll plenty of threads on working with cork.

Okay gotcha! Thank you!

I did try settings found on the Beyond the Manual board (Coastering in with some cork samples). It’s just engraving once you find a setting that works :wink:

It really is just a function of engraving the cork. The laser burns the cork and that is what changes the color. It will all become clear once you get your Glowforge.
