    A friend of a friend has offered to gift me (almost) literally a ton of red oak in the form of 2 foot square 3/4″ sheets.

    I don’t want it to go to waste and would also like to make a little money from it. I would love advice on bits and speeds. I’ve only ever milled aluminium and softer woods before.



    That should be a nice stockpile!

    Softwood and more dense wood are almost exactly the same in terms of milling, 1-3mm/s slower maybe…

    Wow! Lucky you. That’s all Lowes sells here so I need that too.  I’m going to build furniture,  but first I’m building a decorative cask for my mom’s ashes and for people that can’t afford an urn. My personal charity. That’s why I got the MPCNC.

    Good luck. If you get the cut /speed worked out, please let me know. Mike
