Thanks for your advises.
I tried this work again today. I hold the work piece against the starting pin and slowly let the work piece closer to the trim
bit. Fortunately first several cuts were successful. However after several cuts, I had a kick back again. It look like the bit took a bite too big. I used GRR-ripper to hold the work piece, so my fingers were safe.
At this moment this kind of big bit is very scary for me and need a lot of control. I learned that free holding routing on router table is a kind of very tricky and difficult task. I may try smaller size trim bit for my practice or will make the
well work piece holding fixture.
