Other Parameters
I play it safe and also lower the focus by 3mm.

When ready, load your wood, set the distance, then mark your processing area. If you wish, you can frame it. I sometimes need to worry about the honeycomb hold-downs, as they get in the way and need to be moved. When ready - process you cuts.

Load - Adjust - Cut - Repeat for each layer.

Step3: Glue together then Paint or Stain

Glue the three layers together, being sure they are aligned properly to show the different layers. When dry, you can stain or paint the wood to your preference.
