Are you asking how to prevent the burning or how to clean it up on the inside of the grooves?

Some woods are just prone to burning. Make sure the bit is clean and sharp. You might try adjusting the speed if your router is variable speed.

As for cleaning up the burn marks. A Dremel with sanding drum is what I would try.

Thanks for responding yes more on how to clean up the burn .. I generally always get a little but since I’m selling these I don’t want any.. I was going to go that route. Thanks again
