I have made a ton of cutting boards but I never have done one with a gravy moat routed in it. I have been given some 1 1/4” thick scraps from a birch butcher block counter top with a request to make them into carving boards with gravy moats around the edge and the larger one is to have gravy slots cut in the center also. I was wondering if anyone that has done this could give me a few pointers. I am thinking I need a core box bit and some sort of template to follow??

What you said would be my exact suggestion. Using a collet on the router.

Thats the way I would go, make a plwood or mdf template and use the appropriate guide bushing. Have fun
