Bit Selection

I am cutting patterns out in 3/4 oak. I use a 1/4 spiral bit and multiple passes, cut is good, but is this the best bit to use to get the best finish cut?

Epoxy Inlay

I am trying to inlay some small lettering with black epoxy. I use v-carve, it cut fine and fills in fine, but when I sand down I lose some of the small details (dot above i for example) how can I increase the depth of the v-carve and what other alternatives are there?

Thanks
Joe

Tools Paths

Two questions:
What can I due to eliminate/reduce router bit marks on bottom after cutting out pocket?
After cutting a a profile (oval shape) how can I go back and do a round over edge? (need bit and tool path type)?

Thanks

Re: Bit and Toolthpath

The bottom is not an issue the piece will actual be 1 7/8 when done, my idea was to just cut off 1/8 on bottom on band saw, that way do not have to worry about securing I'll just clamp down four corners.

Screen Settings

This may seem like a very basic question, but I just cannot seem to figure it out, is there a way/setting to see both the "Drawing" and the "Toolpath" at the same time on the screen?
