You assume correctly, on all counts. That's part of why I was curious if making a 3D shape was worth the learning curve.

Martin, Chuck,

So I did the math: 8 layers of half-flute pieces each 0.5 inches thick, 2 end pieces 3/8 inch thick. I think I would still have to cut the side tapers on a chop saw -- I don't think I can make a flute on one side and cut a taper on the bottom, right? Is there a way I could have the machine shave a 1/2" piece down to 3/8" while cutting it?
