Can you explain how you did the toolpath for the roof, particularly so you have the ridge in the middle of the roof?

The ridge is the result of ... of ... well ... it was a mistake; however, it looked so good that I kept it. I did hogging passes with an end mill and then i spaced the v bit passes to far apart so one of the edges from the hogging passes remained. Between being good and being lucky, I'll take lucky any day.
