A 2-inch bit doesn t extend beyond the template bushing? I think you re not getting the full-depth plunge from your router.

But, yes, a straight bit will do it. How deep are you trying to go? A very shallow recess will keep the stones from sliding around (a cleat on top of the surface might be easier to do and make it easier to clean up the sharpening sludge)

You may be right I need to check, I tkiught about a cleat but thought it would be cool to try recessing as I have never done it before… I’m hiding a scrap piece of oak I have lying around . As for the depth probably less than 1/4” deep
