This bit absolutely flies through the walnut and leaves an incredibly clean cut! Each insert has 4 sides can be rotated to give you 4 life's out of the same insert before needing to be replaced. These inserts stay sharp for a long time!

I started out by cutting the pieces down to size and then used the bandsaw to help get rid of a cup in the walnut. The pieces were then flattened on the CNC on both sides of the material.
