Laser Engraving a Skateboard with a 3D Fishscale Pattern
In light of our recent participation in the Bordo Bello fundraiser, we thought it would be fitting to share a cool skateboard engraving that anyone can use.
Skaters have an incredible connection to their boards - being able to customize something that is so popular adds a touch of creativity and uniqueness to this very personal and cherished item.
Laser engraved wood skateboards provide a unique, one-of-a-kind look.
Here's a close up of the 3D effect we achieved on the fish scale engraving.

- Skateboard Jig
- Skateboard (Popsicle style)
- 4" Lens - provides the best quality engraving on the curved areas of the skateboard
- An Epilog Laser System
We used a 120-watt Legend 36EXT with the following settings: 50% speed, 100% power with Center-Center engraving and the 3D mode turned on. You can find the 3D mode on the driver's Advanced tab.
Next, place the Skateboard Jig into the system and set the Home Position to the center point of the jig. (See: Creating a Skateboard Jig).
Then place the skateboard onto the standoffs.
Next, send the job to the laser using the proper speed and power settings for your system. Remember: select the 3D Mode option under the Advanced Tab in the Laser Dashboard to get the best results!
