Hello all. A few weeks ago I posted a topic asking for appropriate settings for several hardwoods. As my first project with my mpcnc, I had wanted to make some cutting boards (parrilleras) as gifts for fellow grilling enthusiasts. Also, I just love the look and feel of exotic hardwoods found in southern Mexico. Here’s what I’ve come up with:
Granadillo and maple:
1/8" 45º V-bit 7mm/s feed rate and 30000 rpm
Chechen and oak:
12mm/s feed rate and 30000 rpm on oak
9mm/s feed rate and 30000 rpm (not the ideal settings)
I used a woodburning tool for pyrography, and then applied oil and beeswax for finishing. I’ll also be posting some more pics on my facebook page as I make new designs.
Posting this if anyone ever needs a reference on these woods!
