This week i was cutting some panels for a lady and used baltic birch ply, we work weekly with everything from mohogany to chinese junk weekly

i took these photos and hope someone grasps the strategy involved in good work, not the machine and not always the bit,

McGrew, nice panels. Looks like a couple spots didn't cut all the way thru leaving those runs of hairy fingers on the bottomside. (pic #4) I have that problem sometimes when my spoilboard is not flat and is lower in some areas. They're a pain in the butt to sand off, especially on BB.

Just for poops, my cut strategy on that would have been:
Downcut leaving .04 onion skin utilizing a Climb cut with .01 inside offset.
Compression bit on cut thru pass to a depth .008-.01 past the bottom of the material utilizing a Conventional cut with no offset.
