Timber Sand Etching

Sand Blasted Timber Work

Sand Blasting provide a quality timber engraving option. Unlike Laser engraving sand blasting leaves a raw timber finish which usually creates a contrast with the darker surface timber which is often stained or lacquered. Etchings can be part filled any colour. Sand Blasted and paint fill  is often used instead of Laser Engraving as the paint fill does create a very consistent tone.


Outdoor UV Ok
Etches permanently into the wood surface to a depth of 1-2mm
Creates a natural timber etching.
Can be paint filled to any colour requirement.

Image samples:

Camp Kedron Sign:  The background has been etched away to create this sign. The timber was pre-laquere so the etching becomes lighter and contrasted against the plaque.

Mallee View Sign: Rough cut timber sign with beautiful grain. The etching of the Bull and text has been carved and paintfilled black to create a strong even tine.

Indigenous Giftware: A variety of images and text are sand blasted and colour filled onto different timber pieces here to create these lovely gifts for re-sale.

We can engrave any type of timber, Old logs, fence posts, large signs, Pine crates, Cedar, hardwood, softwood, MDF board, etc.. We use a variety of engraving methods to achieve a quality result for your timber engraving project and will recommend the best way with each job.

Timber Engraving is used for timber signage; often with a rustic look requirement, Gift engraving onto wooden products, product branding, house names and artistic creations.

Sand Blasting

This process will provide excellent rendition of imaging and provide a good solution to timbers with different grain densities or rough uneven surfaces and for long/large panel work. The etching is usually paint filled and can be done to give a burnt timber effect but can be left un-painted which provides a subtle less contrasted finish.

Very High definition can be made with sand blasting. We use a photopolymer film to create a precision stencil that is applied the timber surface as a mask. Definition up to 0.2mm line width can be achieved depending on the timber surface.

Laser Engraving

Laser engraved timber leaves a burnt timber effect which varies in density depending on the type of timber. The lighter the timber the darker the burn. You get crisp sharp detail with laser engraving and a good depth to make your image stand out. Any type of timber can be laser engraved and any image can be engraved including photographic etching via half tone production.

CNC Router Engraving

Used many for large text engraving into timber such as outdoor way finding signage. CNC routing is the process of a rotating cutter carving out lettering. There is no contrast to the surface and the engraved surface so it is normally used in conjunction with paint filling.
