I got some good advice here on a problem that was vexing me, thanks, Steve! So I at least owe a nice project to the community.
Here is a serving tray I made for my mother. http://toolmakingart.com/images/Serving%20Tray/Serving%20Tray3d.crv3d
The trickiest part, apart from the cutting path bleed issue that dealguy11 solved, was getting the profiles to match. The final cut profile and original contour were not a very good match.
So I had to cut the profile, trace it to paper, photograph it and import the image to Aspire.
Then I was able to alter the cuts and make a fairly nice joint.
Because this tray is for food, I wanted the details to be cleanable. So I used a ball nose mill to carve smooth details.
This was made with 1/4" Baltic plywood and Maple.
