    Hey guys, they actually make the bottom removable for this scenario. One of the selling points of the machine.

    Here is what we ended up with, 3 sections of burning. It's gotten 2 good wet coats of brush on WOP, It'll get knocked back a bit with steel wool in the morning and waxed. They wanted a more satin finish. I'm hoping they have a few more of these slabs around, would love to talk them out of some for a few projects of my own....

    I've been meaning to do that to mine. When I move it to the new shop I'm going to set it up on blocks and have a removable block to slide in to use for the bottom on small stuff

    Does the laser head move up and down?

    I thought you had to maintain a certain focus distance between head and board.

    I just got my 40 watt Chinese laser back up and running and starting to learn how to use it.

    You can adjust the laser height. Once it's set, since the board is a flat plane you don't change it until you move to a different work height.
