I tried making a v carved sign out of oak plywood today and the 'v' edge of the letters look horrible.not smooth at all. I did the roughing pass with a 1/4 inch down spiral, then the vcarve with a 1/2" 90 degree Bosch Vbit from Lowes. Is this just the nature of vcarving plywood, or should I be using a different bit?
Thanks in advance,
I haven't tried oak plywood yet, but I have a few sheets of prefinished maple and cherry plywood that v-carves very well.
Thanks for the replies. I don't think my setup would handle climb milling, I see the complaining I get from my sx3 when I do that. What about solid oak? Like the pre finished stair treads you find at lowes/home depot?
