Wood charring is often caused when there's not enough error during the laser cutting process. Here I'm sharing my best advice on getting cleaner wood laser cuts and a dramatic side by side! 

Laser cutters can cut a lot of different different materials, depending on the type and power of the laser.  Wood is one of the most popular materials to laser cut, but if you don't cut it with enough air you can get a lot of charring ruining the project.
