Milling around

Usually when one thinks of milling around wood would not come to mind. I tried making a router template but this is Hard Maple and the 2 inch long bit just tore up the wood so I needed a solution.

So why not use my Mill. Slow but worked like a charm. Nice and controlled, no chatter and 20 pieces are now identical.

One of 20

This is operation #2. The first op as they say was to mill the short leg. Then I had to re fixture the clamping arrangement and mill the longer length.

Maple chips have a nice fragrance

What are these 2 inch L shaped pieces for any way. Stair treads for our alternating stairway up in our Timber Frame Cottage.
