1

Material Preparation

60 minutes

Purchased 4/4 hard maple.
The board width I selected was approximately 9 inches.

I purchased unfinished wood that required some planing in order to smooth and level.

2

Easel Program

25 minutes

Using the attached PNG create the wave pattern.

Export the G-code and visualize it on Camotics since the cutting tool is a 3/4" ball end mill. (Freud 18-112 3/4 in. Round Nose Router Bit)

3

Milling

5 minutes

Mill the wave pattern.

Change tool to a regular mill and cut circular patterns.

4

Finishing

Sand and finish the final product

Nice! I love the look with the ball end mill. I've gotta try this.

What settings were used when using the ball nose bit?

Chris, I used a 3/4" diameter round bit with a cut depth of 1/4". Since the milling pattern is an area, it creates that "wave" effect.

What I meant was did you tell the machine that it was actually an 1/8" bit instead of 3/4"? and if so what were your feed settings etc?
