So you just use painters tape. aka masking tape. It works great for wood surfaces. It keeps the hot smoke that comes from burning the wood from charing the edges of your engraving. You want to try to avoid overlapping the tape because it can leave lines at the areas of overlap. You can get the wide stuff from amazon. I also use it to mask off an area i want to paint. So if I have a wood sign, I paint it, tape it, engrave it, paint the engraved area, then remove the tape. The tape is safe to laser because it is just paper and adhesive. I like the brown tape best... I dont know why but Ralph and I like it best.
