Wood Preparation

Processing of wood by conventional mechanical tools like saws or planes leaves behind a layer of squeezed wood only slightly adhering to the solid wood surface. Laser ablation of this layer could improve the durability of coatings and glued joints. As an additional result, this technique provides an easy way for preparing wood surfaces with excellently conserved cellular structure. The surface of the wood is ready to have the paint or coating applied with no sanding necessary.
