Such trimming cuts require a lot of control. The bit can take too big
a bite and catch on the wood.

I sometimes make a flat jig with the template attached to it and put
two solid handles on the jig. You have to have really positive control
of the workpiece to make trimming cuts with those long pattern bits
on the router table.

Starting pins are also very useful for beginning this type of cut successfully.
