Thanks @Bee. I’ll send pics tomorrow afternoon after I get to finish it out.
@Jayster you guesed it on the size! And it took too long! Around an 1.5 hr. I forgot to run the post processor on the makercam file (works great taking safety height out of follow path code) used .125” bit and lowered at .0625 on the follow path.
Half way through I did pause, go into advanced settings and bump up my mm/m from 800 to 1000. I had set the speed in makercam to 40ipm, so when the setting changed it sped things up.

Can you explain this a little more?

makercam does a lot of in/out (z axis) movement that’s not needed, and frequently makes a lot of moves across the workpiece and back. there is a post-processor that greatly reduces this which significantly speeds up the cutting.

Well that’s cool. Never thought about using grout. Similar look to a resin but I imagine cheaper.

Did you have to seal the wood before grouting?

I did not…

Wow! Amazing! Only 1 and a half hours for that! I am absolutely blown away and amused by the fact you think it took too long. I am coming from the world of 3D printing where small objects take hours and hours. Can’t wait for my Maslow to arrive :slight_smile:
