thank you very much

I am not familiar with this process. What do you mean by ‘upper part’, ‘bottom part’? Can you describe the process in a little more detail?

It looks nice, but I have no idea how to reproduce it.

This is super cool, I will have to find some videos this sounds like your laser has to be DIALED IN to get it right. My laser is entirely homemade. It cuts and engraves but not at this level yet. Good job.

Thank you mate, also mine is entirely homemade :wink:

MDF is toxic right? i mean glue

MDF is normally cured with formaldehyde, so YES the fumes are toxic, as is the dust from CNC machining MDF.

1/ wear a suitable respiratory mask
2/ start all ventilation fans
3/ verify the job is running correctly
4/ leave the area, and watch it remotely
