I am not familiar with your project per se. I do have some thoughts on pattern routing that I would like to share with you though. First, If you get overly agressive with the solid carbide up cut spiral bet, it will snap and possibly cause an injury. Second, If it doesn’t snap, it may have some serious run out.

That aside, I prefer to use 1/2 inbch shanked patternmaker’s bits (bearing ont the top) or flush cut trim bits (bearing on the bottom. They can be resharpened and they won’t snap if you dont bandsaw close enough to your line (1/8” is about the norm).

Good luck,
