Making a CNC lake sign using Amana Tool® router bits in my CNC machine and router table! Links to the plans and all tools used are below.
The CNC work was done on the Stepcraft Q.408 4'x8' CNC machine, available on our website! All of the carving was done using Amana Tool no. RC-1102 90° Insert carbide ‘V’-Groove router bit, this provided a very clean cut especially with the cleanup pass built into the Vectric V-carve pro software available on our website (link below).
