Other than tedious hand sanding, or taking another light finishing pass with the router, I am unaware of another way to clean up this burn.

Better, is to avoid the burn altogether.

Maybe you already know this, but, it probably bears repeating; Understanding why you get the burn on your router is to understand chip loads.

The waste chips that your router produces carries off heat from the cut with them.
If the chips are small and few, due to too fast rpm’s, or too slow feed rate, then the heat stays in the bit and you get burns.

So, if you have a variable speed router, slowing down the rpm’s will help reduce burning, as well as avoiding feeding too slowly.

Hope this helps.
