NEWB to my shapeoko bits

I just received my new shapeoko xxl but delayed getting bits because I want to search quality bits that will work for what I need.

What I need it to do:
Cut right through 1/2" baltic birch, the tighter corners I can get the better

Wont need it to carve.

Thanks guys!

Adding to what Will mentioned. If you are cutting entirely through, you might want to consider compression endmills. They will give you good finish on bottom and top.
