  7. Thank you. Regarding perfect accuracy when flipping the stock over. Base material is milled to accurate block and XYZ datum is same for both sides of milling. Before flipping stock over small pocket was milled to machine table (wooden part) which assure perfect alignment.

Thank you Heinz for nice words. Still learning but I am confident enough to do some work for others.

I started with simple 2D stuff and slowly progress to 3D.... If you have any questions or need help, please feel free to ask. Thanks Vene, I am glad you like it .

Currently I am still experimenting with different approaches , parameters, tools and will post progress...
