SANY1114.JPGIMAG0001.jpgThis is what failure looks like...

Apparently the router melted some hot glue, which melted foam, picked up the foam bits, let them re-solidify into a disc, which then cut way more than the 1/8″ of the router bit would normally… first it carved the right side, but when it moved to the left it picked up the extra material, as seen in the first two pictures.  The result?  A whole bunch of cut away details that should’ve remained in the final picture…

On the plus side, I’ve improved the carving program since that carving, so it will be faster to re-create it.
