That is a lot of tool paths.
What does the profile look like.
The lines you have the pointers on are where the pockets overlap each other the resulting profile looks like a standard mdf raised panel door cut with hand routers using a 1 1/2 cove for the panel,a 7/8 cutter with a 3/16 bead for the rails and stiles and a 1/8 cutter to square the corner. The widest pocket is offset so that my 1 1/2 cove cutter when set at the machine as a 1/4 dia. streight cutter will and did cut a pocket resulting in the panel raise. The next pocket outward from that was off set to cut using the 7/8 cutter set up at the machine as a 1/8 streight cutter to pocket .that pocket resulted in the bead profile.The last pockets (the smallest) was offset so that when I set up my 1/8 streight cutter as a1/16 dia. it cut those pockets resulting in the corners on top of the bead squared.The total number of pockets in this file are six. The door you are looking at took 2min and 45 sec to cut. Note again the geomintry on this file is for pockets not tool paths.
