Going to set up a jig to plane the wide natural edge board, and am curious to what bit I should get for the router.

Is your router variable speed? What horsepower? These specifications can help determine whether or not you’ll be able to turn a larger bit.

I ordered a bit through Amazon for the same purpose. It’s a “Roman Carbide DC1261”. I’ll use it in my Milwaukee 3-1/2HP Router (5625-20).

Wow .. interestingly, the painting is the right orientation but the router seems stuck to a wall.

A large bowl bit will help eliminate the lines as the edges are radiused.
