General Information

I cut Nikka Coffey Grain Whiskey bottles in half using a tile saw and wanted to make some wooden lids. the bottles occasionally have different thicknesses so i made the middle lid a little looser to accommodate the thicker walled bottles. So far i have carved both walnut and maple lids.

I like this idea, but I'm having trouble seeing how the design in this Easel link creates the final shape. To me, all I see is circular grooves cut into the material. I dunno why, but I'm having trouble designing lids for myself and wanted to get a better understanding of how to do that in Easel.

The dark circle around each one should cut all the way through the material. With his design you have to use a 1/8" bit or smaller to make it happen.
