One extra thought, on my cnc the direction of cut is either picked for easy of programming the cut or to prevent tear out. But sometimes in some woods climb cutting produces a better finish due to the different chip shape.

On a router table any internal dado or groove you cut will be a climb cut on one side of the bit. So if you have a box joint jig are you climb cutting? We don't usually call it that, but the wood doesn't know what you call it, only which way the blade hits it.
