If she appreciates something like a Pi plate, MARRY HER!!!! Women who understand the kind of nerdy we are, or at least accept us for it are few and far between.

Are these for food preparation or display? 

If for food prep are there potential health issues due to burning the wood?

@ laser_cutter

It's for food preparation.

Currently, I use a lot of wooden utensils (laser engraving). The tip of these blackened with time due to the temperature of the stove. I don't think it's dangerous to your health, or at least not much more than anything else in your daily life. But I don't pretend to have the science infuse... everyone is free to do as they please.

I can't imagine the charing being a hazard but perhaps the cleaning. How deep are your cuts? Do you apply a finish?

It's hard to say... maybe about 0.5 mm. It's really not deep. ;D

On the large trays (Pi and the periodic table) I used food paraffin to waterproof the wood.

I agree charring shouldn't be a problem, and I wouldn't expect it to be any different to other wood cutting boards.

The only health hazard I could see is when you are cleaning the board after using it. Food/bacteria could stay caught in the engraved area if not cleaned properly.

As for the charting, I suggest some sort of sealant.  Not really for health hazard but I donít know if I want charted soot on my veggies  ;)

On cutting boards, I usually tell folks to display the lasered side, and use the other side for food prep. Not just for cleaning purposes, but mostly so the lasered image doesn't get all marred up from the chopping and cutting of a knife.

I may need to use that periodic table idea. My brother is a chemical engineer, and I drew his name this year for the sibling Christmas gift exchange...
