Wormy Chestnut

I have access to some wormy chestnut and I was wondering the setting to use. I will be using it only for engraving as it is cut to two inches thick.

A great way to start for new woods is to find what it’s similar to on the Janka scale:

and then run tests starting with settings used on those similar materials.

It’s quite close to Hickory, just harder than Rosewood and weaker than Purpleheart.


Thx for the link, it has been added to my laser rabbit holes folder :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:


Thank you so much for the link! I am new to all of this and learning quiet a bit from all of the great people here.
