This file is set up to run on 3/4” MDF cut to 24” x 32” with a ¼”end mill. Other materials can be used but I would suggest changing the bit settings and cut depth if running on harder materials.
This file is set up to run on 1/8” thick acrylic cut to 18” x 26” with a ¼”end mill. Depending on your bed surface you may have success running this this file. I personally DID NOT have success running this file. I cut one of the ovals from this file in ¾ plywood then cut my acrylic to 6” x 8” rectangles on the table saw. Using double sided tape, I attached each rectangle to the oval template and trimmed each one on a router table with a 1/8” straight bit.
This item is comprised of 4 parts, 3 parts out of MDF which must be glued or taped together, then 1 piece of acrylic which must be installed prior to final assembly of the MDF parts. We suggest using 100% silicone caulk to keep the product food safe.
