That won’t work because the more wood you remove the more the piece will fall into the blade. The only way to assure that it works is if you stabilize each corner of the work at a uniform height as you hog out the rest of the stuff.

That said, if you glue up some temporary blocks at all four corners, those could serve as feet while you hog out everything else. Then when done, cut off the blocks.

Even so, it sounds dangerous.

I’d make a router sled.
