Some wood, like cherry or purpleheart, seem to burn no matter what. But like said above, steady, solid movement, never stopping is the trick. Also might want to do two cuts, as a deeper cut may bog down the router and slow down the cut, causing heat and burn. Just once you start, commit and don’t stop, or pull off if necessary to keep it from burning.
