So maybe I figured this out…
Although, I’m confused in the order of operations here.
I have a bitsetter but you dont use v bits with the bit setter so being there is a 1/4 inch endmill here to cut the shallow pocket (rounded rectangle) and then cut out the majority of the waste in those leaf like designs, and then the v bit to clean up the area in the corners and then the 1/4 endmill for cutting out the handle hole and the cutout of the board.
if this is a crap post, and been asked before, then sorry. I was just hoping to get a grasp on this type of design detail cause I’d like to make stuff like this for family for the holidays. (I also have more things like this I’ve made but have been too intimated to try and see it through without potentially damaging my bit and/or material)
I mill all of my stock myself before I take it to the machine for design work so you can see how hesitation becomes a thing. Doing all of that milling then to get to the machine and F something up and you’re just like. “hello darkness my old frienddddd…”
