Matt, Mantwi has the right of it in his second post, it depends on what side of the bit you’re using to cut, I typed mine quick earlier and didn’t explain it well. Let’s just eliminate the fence question and say you were using a bearing guided bit, with the bit spinning, you would feed the stock into the edge of the bit closest to you from the right side to the left side. If you were to use the side of the bit furthest from you would feed from the left to the right to avoid the climb cut, If you ever cut a rabbet in a picture frame or a case frame for a back, you’ll see this real quick as you go around the blade. Look at router fence plans like this

the “wings” or infeed and outfeed fences can be adjusted to fit the spaces near your bit and you don’t have to sacrifice the fence portion unless you need ZCI for the bit, plus you can get a bit of topside dust collection!

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
