It may be easier just to cut out the ellipse yourself. Is there a particular reason you want it done by CNC?

There is, basically because of the complexity. f it were a simple elliptical top from sold wood I would definitely just cut it out. I’m making a Thorsen inspired dining table, so I need the center cut with a faceted edge, then all of the edge pieces to fit precisely, then the ellipse after I get it all assembled, then all the splines….seems like a good job for a CNC. Actually, what I’m really after is having the patterns for the above cut on CNC from MDF, then I can pattern route the parts.

I may just invest in a small CNC like the Shark and make up the patterns myself. If I carefully tile the parts for the larger patterns I should be able to make what I need on a small hoppy size CNC.

Thanks!

I see, it does sound complex. I wish you much success.
