The most difficult project was a very simple house number.
A slap of teak I had lying around seemed to have the number already in it. It just needed to be pocketed in the right places to pop it out. To do this, I needed to trace a photo I took of the slab clamped to the machine.
Anyhow, somewhere down the line, I adjusted the probe-block height to account for my clamping, and I forgot to readjust it back. The only reason I got away with it was that my first carving was only a mm deep, to see if my pockets would align. If not, I could still surface the piece and get a second chance.
