Engraving without the crumb tray

I am a new owner and I have a cutting board I want to engrave that is 0.6" in height. Since I will not be using the crumb tray is it necessary to put something under it or will it engrave as is?


I believe you’ll need to put something under it.

You’ll want the surface you’re engraving to be in that 0.5" range above the surface of where the crumb tray would have been.

If you search the forums I think you may be able to find some simple designs for simple risers to use for this purpose. Good luck!


This question is outside our team’s scope. I’ve moved it to the Beyond the Manual so the discussion can continue there.
