how does the app account for bit width?

Hi Martin, The bit and material depth needs to be set in your Easel file *before* you open the app. The app accounts for them.

Hi Dave, yes, if you use the box making app, you can choose the dimensions of the box. Watch the video in the project instructions to learn how.

Hi. Anxiously waiting my X Carve to arrive. For this bird house when and where do you apply the paint mask. Surely, you don't apply to full sheet when you just need it for the lid portion? Thanks

Hi @munawar, If you are just painting the lid, you can apply the paint mask just on the part of the wood the mask will be cut from. You do want to put the paint mask on before ant cutting happens. - Sam
