I’ll have a ‘H’ please Bob!

Little maple coaster I made today based on the look of the Blockbuster TV show from the 90s. The font is digital 7 I think from Dafont and the lettering is filled with Milliput.

That's very nice. I wonder if you can machine the Milliput off with the cnc?

Yeah you can. Although it can depend on the font. If you use a serif font and it’s skimmed flat then you risk losing the serif. If you use something like comic sans then it doesn’t matter if you skim a little extra than intended. What I tend to do though is skim off the milliput and leave about 1/10th mm of milliput on the surface then sand flat. Milliput is tough stuff so machining some of it away saves on sanding pads as the milliput tends to clog and stick to the pads which means I usually need to use 2 or 3 if I’ve applied it on thick.
