    Question First 3D Carving Project on Hardwood

    This project turned out pretty good except for the artifacts seen in the photos. I used a 1/16" tapered bull nose. Did I set up the machine wrong or is this normal for hardwood (oak I think)?

    I don't think you did anything wrong,any woodworker will tell you that some pieces of wood are more difficult to work than others of the same species.Its certainly not unusual to have to clean up a few fuzzy edges and a small,sharp chisel will almost certainly make short work of it.Its pretty clear that when you were cutting the fibres that didn't run into the relief sections that the corners were cleaner.

    Just jumping in here. I am wondering if these are for personal use or sale - no need to answer that. I am a member of other forums, and many members who have created items such as this have had Harley Davidson (lawyers) contact them warning them to stop. Apparently they (HD) are very active in protecting their copyrights.

    I do woodworking as a hobby and working with oak you tend to get fuzzys as I call them. But from what I understand with cnc if you go a little slower on the feed you will have less fuzzys. But that is using a palm router doing inlays by hand. I am just now starting out adding a cnc to my tools to do inlays and such since my hands shake a little since my stroke.
