Engraving wood is very well possible, both texts and patterns as well as images. Because wood can discolour in all kinds of shades, beautiful contrast-rich images can be created. When engraving, the wooden surface is burned, so that it becomes darker in color. The slower and more powerful the engraving is performed, the darker (and deeper) the result. One type of wood colors darker than the other, and one is softer than the other, allowing deeper engravings to be created.
