Hello, I’ve recently received my Glowforge and am trying to learn everything I can!
I’m in love with the finish of the proofgrade wood but it’s too expensive to get in the uk. I want to be able to get that sort of finish on wood/plywood I buy, but would ideally like to, as with PG, add the finish before I cut it.
Are there any varnishes or stains or finishes that you recommend for treating wood pre-cutting? I’m an illustrator and metal worker by trade and so wood is an entirely alien world to me and I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by the huge variety of finished and varnishes to choose from!
Any advice you can give would be immensely appreciated
