First Stacked carve question

Still very new to this. Used Easel to create a “Stacked” carve.
Used 2 bits. Rough pass was a 1/4" down cut bit. Finish was a 1/16" up cut.
Everything seemed to go well. No movement on the bit change. Reset the z on the bit change.
This was just a test cut.
If you look at the pictures you will see a couple areas that did not get finished to the final depth.

  1. Left side of the “D” and “T”
  2. between the G and the A
  3. Between the A and the Y upper area
  4. Between the V and the E.

Is this something that i did wrong?
If this is something with Easel, how do I correct it?
I am using Firefox as the web browser.

Don’t know what else to tell you to help out.

Very cool! What size board did you use?

Looks great! I’m new to this to and have lots of questiond.

It cam out of my junk pile. It was a 1" thick stair tread.


I was surprised at how it came out. (happy)

But then i noticed the what i would call shadows that were not taken down to the base carve depth.

Dont know why that happened.
Want to try and stop it from happening again.


That looks great. I just tried my first stacked carve the other day as well. It was much easier than I thought it would be and opened my eyes to a lot of new possibilities.

I just purchased a down cut bit that I was told would eliminate some of the imperfections in mine.

@RobertDavet Can you share the Easel project? There are a couple things it could be.
