Why is my Z axis not going as deep as I want?

Ok so the depths came out good with the practice piece of pine. But for whatever reason my cutting board is off. Again, it is the same size all around 1.66-1.67 so I am stumped

What size is your geometry?

Are you cutting to the outside or inside of it or along it?

Are you cutting with the same size tool as is defined in the file?

Are you asking the size of my cutting board? It’s roughly 19.5 x 14.5 inches and 1.66 thick. I’m not sure what you mean by cutting along it. I am using a 1/8 inch endmill and it is cutting everything to the right sizes except the depth

What method are you using to hold the stock down

Double sided tape for now. It sits perfectly flat and doesn’t move

Gotcha I had a few of the bigger jobs lift in the middle when using clamps so I went to the painters tape and superglue method
