Thanks for your response, Les. At the moment, I have a call into one of the techs at Leigh to ask about the possibility of using MDF or, perhaps, two 8” boards as backers for my 14” wide blanket chest sides.

My router is also a Porter Cable 690 and I have been researching a foolproof method of assuring that the base plate is centered. If I could guarantee centering, I don’t think the lowering/raising of the straight bit would be a problem. I’ve seen the Jasper universal base plate with centering pin as well as a Bosch centering cone. I will ask the Leigh tech his opinion on these issues and get back to you with his response. Again, thanks for the reply.
