Here's an example of how it might be done. Note that the vectors go 1" past the center so the center ridge ends up below the material surface. Also note that the surface is cut with an end mill, not a ball end. an end mill produces a smoother surface.
Give me a call at 425 two sevendyone 1074 to discuss other options.

Thank you for your input.
