FLOOR_WALL won't start cutting at blank height.

Pioneer

I have it set up as a WORKPIECE with my blank selected within that.  I am able to leave .100" or any amount I want on the floor but I cannot get the toolpath to start at the blank height.  It seems to want to start from the part height.  I have it set to Blank Geometry in the containment tab.

I probably should have mentioned that I already tried this.  The channel is 1.500" deep and the blank is .175" above the part.  Changing the Blank to "Thickness" instead of "Blank Geometry" and entering 1.675" gives me the same thing.

I'm not a floor/wall expert, but isn't there a setting to tell f/w whether to take the blank into account, or not?
