I think the 1/4” deep cut in end grain on such a small part probably added up to your kick back. roughing your oak blank much closer to the finished size before you clean it up with the pattern bit will help. If you use your pattern to draw the outline on the oak you can cut pretty much right up to the pencil line on the bandsaw and still have material to clean up with the router. I try to leave 1/32” to 1/16” max to cleanup with the router.
