Dialing in my contrast with the new lens and air assist… laser tip 400 grit sandpaper will bring out details you thought were lost

I’m going to have to try that 400 grit technique, looks like so much of the detail reappears. When you 400 grit it, is that manually by hand or with an orbital sander or similar?

Wow looks great!

@Yuusuf_Sallahuddin_Y ​ I do it by hand comparing to the image I processed to fine tune where I apply pressure to get the best result. It doesn’t take much pressure… I cleaned this piece in less than 3 minutes… I also pre sand the wood smooth before raster

@Alex_Krause Ah, that’s a good idea to pre-sand the wood before lasering. I will have to give that a go next time I laser wood. It’s a huge difference between the before sanding & after sanding.
