In one of my recent posts about the home for sale, a few of you commented on the laser cut wood panel that was featured.
For those that are curious about this application, today’s post should answer a few of your questions.
In case you missed that post, you can find it here
Here is a photo of the laser cut wood panel incase you are wondering what the heck I’m talking about 🙂
My client wanted something unique and understated, but still has some presence to accent the wall niche near the foyer of her home. This hallway leads to the children’s wing of this lovely home, so we wanted something that wasn’t too precious or breakable just incase little hands got to it.
I turned to a company that I had in my resource library called Lightwave Laser. I honestly had been dying to use their products on a project, so this was the perfect opportunity and I was glad when I got the green-light.
If you get a chance to check out their website, you should. You would be very inspired by all that you can do with their products. They are great as wall panels, room dividers, floor screens, backsplashes, art pieces, furniture accents, and window covers…..and really any other use you can imagine.
There are tons of patterns available with intricate detailing, various wood species that you can choose from, and you get to choose the thickness you want for your project. Of course because it is a natural wood product, you can add paint or stain to finish.
Lightwave Laser wood panels can be used in residential and commercial spaces.
Here is a bit about the company:
Ron Macken started Lightwave Laser in 2004. Their products and services have evolved over the years, although they have always focused on decorative laser-cutting. Ron has more than 20 years experience in the field, including expertise in machine design, programming, and manufacturing. After working with talented designers and artists for many years, Ron began creating original art about two years ago.
In 2013 Lightwave Laser expanded its laser cutting capabilities by adding a very special paper cutting technology. This technology was originally invented and built by the Macken family of Lightwave Laser over 25 years ago when they were known as Lasercraft. In 2000 this equipment was sold to Laser Excel in Green Lake, WI. Twelve years later this business has come full circle and is now back home with the Macken family in Santa Rosa, CA where the partnership of art and technology is a way of life.
Take a look at a few examples from their image gallery from their website
As you can see, Lightwave Laser products are highly customizable.
Here are some of my favorite patterns available
These panels look amazing when they are backlit. The shadows they cast on a wall provide great ambience in a room. You can also add fabric or plexiglass behind them depending on the application.
