All six are done. All were routed in one shot. Follow on passes made here and there to even up the cuts.

This one is my favorite and will go on the front face for sure…

My router table is a Rockler top mounted to a folding stand salvaged from the dump. I used to pull the router and collapse the stand and hang it on the wall long ago. But I have room to leave it set up all the time in my new shop.

The shop vac dust collection off the fence usually catches about 90%, but with the large hole exposed by this bit, I’d say half of the mess wound up on the floor. I ran the air filter on high the entire time and the pre-filter is pretty well caked over with Mahogany dust.

I think its long past time for me to build a proper router table with DC hook ups to the back of an enclosed router box.
