Easel to cut a circular plate

I am new to creating /designing using easel as well as using Maslow CNC. please bear with me while I learn things. I am trying to design a circular plate with a sort of groove/track about 1/4 in in from the circumference of the circle. The groove is about 1 1/2 in - 2 in wide.

So I set it up like so. :

It is basically a set of concentric circles with the H/W set to decrease by thewidth of the router bit (1/4 in)

Is there a better way to do this ? I basically want to cut out such “plates” in decreasing size
the plate I have in the image above is 12 in, the 2nd plate would be 11 in and so on. (basically if arrranged as a stack it would be like a cone )

Thanks for any pointers/help with this


The software automatically adjusts the offset based on the chosen bit size and cut type(inside,on,outside)

Fusion360 is great but they keep restricting more of the features in the hobby license. for this reason I have fully switched my development to freecad. there are tons of youtube videos on using the software and I have had excellent luck with posting directly to Maslow using grbl_G81_post. FWIW I am using webcontrol on a raspberry pi. I access webcontrol from my phone, tablet or laptop.
