looking at your custom jig and the assembly line you have going in your profile,
you are doing a great job !!
what kind of plywood are you using ??

I would ask how old is your bit and what kind of flutes does it have
for feedback on how to prevent future issues.
try taking smaller bites of wood vs doing it all in one swoop.
is this the only one burned this bad so far? or do you have a few to clean up.
and I agree – if you are going to sell them, they need to be perfect.

do you have a dremel tool with a sanding disk ?
is it possible to re-route that part maybe 1/32” deeper with a new bit ??

Thanks John

Well the router bit is brand soaking new and this trivet was its first project !!! It’s a down spiral bit 1/2” shank.

This was only a prototype I will not be using plywood for production I’m actually going to see what looks good st the lumber yard today, I think it was birch plywood (not Baltic birch) Home Depot stuff

I would wait and see what your results are with the actual wood you will be using. Some species are more prone to burning that others. With the plywood test piece some of the problem might be due to the glue between laminations.
