I am building a garden hod for my wife for her new garden. If you look at the picture of this one I found on Google images, you can see the groove for the wire to go into. The wire is 1/16” thick and fairly ridged. My idea is to get a 1/8” bit and use either my hand router or router table and set the fence at say 3/8” and just route the groove working my way around the rounded corners till I reach the other side. My question is this safe or should I do it with my hand held router with the fence on it set to 3/8”? Should I get an upcut or downcut spiral bit? Any info you provide will be greatly appreciated.
