Hello every one. If you viewed all three of the videos that I posted yesterday then you saw me use the calculator that I made in excel to come up with the constraints for the flutes in part 3. Today I would like to share the video that shows how I made this calculator. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Hi, I don’t have, nor use any cnc tools, but being mathematically challenged I like the calculator just because it finds the flute center lines for you with out me pulling out my (what little I have left) hair out. Besides I like reading about different processes as I think there is always something to learn.

Thank you Bob for the feedback. I am glad to know that I am able to help a fellow wood worker. I am also mathematically challenged as you put it. This is why I made a commitment several years ago to learn excel. It is an extremely valuable tool for any shop to have in there toolbox. I do not know what I would do without it. By the way eCabinets is not just for CNC. It is also a valuable program to any shop to use no matter what construction methods you use.
