    First remove your cut paths and carve regions, leaving just your drawn shapes. Hi light the outer shape and assign your bit (note if you have the 3/16" bit it will be a faster carve) and set the depth you want. Next, select your outer shape again and use the "path offset" tool. In the "distance" box input 1/2 of the bit diameter. Select your new lines and repeat the copy offset and continue to do so until you have your path area completed.
