Resurfacing Piece Before Carving

I am having difficulty resurfacing a piece of wood before I carve. I have a 7.5 x 7.5 square I want to resurface flat, then flip. Using the 1.25 bit that came with the Pro to resurface the wasteboard.

I home the machine, I set xy zero to the piece and then hit carve. When it starts to resurface it offsets the surfacing area, leading off 2 edges, top and right, by 1/2 inch then doesn’t go all the way to the left and bottom edges, leaving the same 1/2 inch.

How do I get this to surface the entire piece?
Thanks in advance!

So, as I figure out the XCarve Pro and Easel Pro …

I figured this out. Position the work away from the machine zero and make the 1/32 inch pocket carve larger than the piece. It worked for me.

How did you do this? It sounds like your work zero is off.
You should not need to

Unless that’s how it is setup in Easel.
