Finally finished this difficult project thanks to Viktor.
Mine is slightly different but the process is the same
First built a jig to attach to your router table which can move horizontally , square to the table.
Hole is drilled for a pivot pin to swing the piece over the dovetail bit.
Support for the wood is important as each pass is the same depth.
Built a prototype to test the concept.
Each piece is identical and the pivot hole is the same
Once one board is done the next has to match .
this is critical.
I used the same pivot hole to hog out the grease area but with a Trend circle jig.
Thanks to Viktor for the inspiration.
Now to tackle more grease boxes
Tired and retired in N. California

This is too beautiful for a grease box, but then again it will be cherished. What type of grease will you use? I hope something expensive, French and smells good.
