Ok, here is my first post…I am not a experienced woodworker, but I am no newbie either.
So, I removed my fence, installed and adjust my bit to the right height, and started cutting. Now, this is the first time I have ever attempted this. I know that I needed to stay on the side of the bit that was turning into the work, same as if a fence was there. So, everything is fine until I come around the end and start to cut across the end grain, the bit caught, chunked out a huge piece of my work, destroyed my jig. WTF? Destroyed two pieces (after making another pattern), same issue. I obviously am not doing something correct in my technique. I can pattern cut all day long across the end grain when I use the router handheld.
Any suggestions about a site to go to or a book to read about pattern cutting technique on the table? Where did I go wrong?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions
