Wood needed

hello I have been looking for types of plywood with the tape already on it. does anyone know by any chance where I can purchase it? its like the plywood that comes included with the glow forge.

As far as I know GF is the only place that has the tape already on the material. You can purchase the tape on Amazon and tape the material yourself.

As for ore asked that’s going to be harder to find. Maybe Trotec, Inventables or johnson plastics? They’re dedicated laser material providers.

There are some laser friendly suppliers that have cropped up and I believe some offer pre-masked materials. If you don’t get an answer here, try one of the larger GF forums on FB. It’s definitely cheaper to mask it yourself, but obviously a bit more time intensive.

I’ve always tapped my own, even made a jig to tape it down. The one I got was on Etsy for about $10, very much worth it. With the jig I can have a pannel covered perfectly both sides in less than a minute.

I’ve made many purchases from https://www.laseredbythecreek.com/

and have always been satisfied. They offer options of no masking, single side masking or double side masking.

quick question do you guys know if when you buy the wood it comes pre taped?

It’ll depend on where you buy it - there have been a number of suggestions in this thread. When you’re looking at the description it will say something to the effect of “this comes masked”.
