Red Oak Nightmare
I was asked to route a design (well, words, actually) in a piece of Red Oak. Nothing big or fancy, just a couple words. I've now attempted it FOUR TIMES and to my standards, the results are not acceptable. I used brand new carbide (one Freud, one other high-end brand-I forget the name of it,) bits, and the size of the lettering was only 5/8" high, so needless to say I wasn't cutting deep. (Especially since they weren't real "Fanciful" letters, but dressy just the same; being somewhat thin in the lines.) The lines aren't nearly straight, the bits refused to follow instruction (it was like working with an unruly child *or a couple "adults" I know*!!!) What in the blazes is the deal? Insight?
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.
