Wood has qualities that allows it to be graded on its durability affecting its cost. Elements such as knots,
heartwood, softwood and hardwood are often examined when pricing the wood. These qualities allow the material to be graded on how durable and strong it is consequently affecting the price of it and its uses.
Before purchasing wood for CNC cutting let’s have a look at the wooden elements that may affect the price and the cutting process.
Wooden knots are formed when a growing tree is enclosing the old branches that died off or new buds that were only beginning to form. The patterns formed by wooden rings growing round the knots create a visual appeal in the use of furniture, floors and other attributes of interior applications. The position, size, number and condition of the knots will affect the strength of the wood and determine its appropriate uses in construction.
When purchasing a piece of wood that contains knots our CNC specialist will advise you on the best approach. They will make sure that the knots are aesthetically positioned without compromising the strength of the material.
We can cut the following types of woods plywood, veneer plywood, mdf, soft woods & hard woods.
In domestic applications you’ll see furniture such as rad covers, kitchen cabinets and wall panels all made out of MDF. In commercial uses MDF materials will be used for indoor and outdoor signage and other branding such as exhibition stands. Sometimes entire pieces will include parts that were cut on a CNC machine.
Commercial uses of CNC may involve signage that will be displayed outside. For this use you will find tricoya to be one of the most durable materials.Tricoya is an extremely water resistant type of MDF. Its exterior applications brings the swelling of the material to a negligible level.
OSB is another type of material that is becoming popular in interior design. It’s uses are no longer restricted for roof sheathing, flooring and walls. It is widely used to construct domestic and commercial cabinetry due to its unusual, rich texture. A custom made osb piece of furniture is a gateway of creating an outstanding feature in a home.
CNC cutting service is priced per hour of cutting time or design work. The type of material and the complexity of a design can affect the cutting time. This is because different types of materials can be more complex to cut. For example, MDF will be cut faster than Plywood due to the difference in their physical composition.

When choosing Wood for your project it is important to understand the exact type of its exploitation. Under proper conditions, timber can have a long life and an outstanding performance. However if Wood is applied and treated incorrectly it can cause various different decaying issues such as fungal activity, dry rot and insect damage. Choosing timber over composite materials can provide a beautiful aesthetic appeal due to its natural grain and colour.
