Scott it was my idea of a little bit of humour, I assumed that most would have seen the original vectric project by Michael Tyler (got that wrong didn't I
European oak does seem to be very different from your white & red oak, it machines quite well, that is straight off the machine & only had a quick brush over with a very soft brush to remove any loose sawdust. I tend to use it quite a bit as it's easy for me to get at the sawmill I buy my wood from.
I used a 1.5mm ball nose for the finish cut but think I should have actually gone with a 1mm, the detail in the rose model isn't as good as I would have liked, will probably cut another one
The original project had 4 parts glued together, front back & 2 middle pieces to give it the correct depth, this is just a back & front part & I have pocketed out the back of both pieces to hollow out the inside.
