Thanks again. I'm just worried about the smaller curves using a 1/2" bit, but I'll give it a try and see what happens. I'll have to order that whiteside bit.

If you have a 3/8" collet you might try an 3/8" end mill. It will get closer in the curved areas. I some times use a 1/2 bit to get through the bulk of the material then follow up with a 1/4" or even a 1/8" bit to get in closer, it doesn't deflect as much if its not cutting to heavy.
