Router Pattern Cutting Question
First time poster here, long time lurker and reader.
Have a small project I am working on for my own home, and if successful, hope to maybe one day reproduce to sell/ give to family and friends. The snag I am running into is with using my router to follow a pattern and cut a somewhat detailed shape out of 3/4" stock. In my head before trying, I thought I could use maybe a 1/8" flush trim bit with a bearing and just trace the pattern and then boom, I would have a duplicate of my pattern but in a nice 3/4" piece of wood.
Upon trying, this is posing to be a lot more difficult than I envisioned. I originally chose the router thinking it would be quicker than a scroll saw and could get a consistently reproducible shape. Now I'm not so sure..
Does anyone have experience with cutting shapes out of 3/4" material using a pattern? If so, what do you recommend using for both tool and bit. Ideally would use a 1/8" bit to cut the details/corners, but could possibly make due with a 1/4" bit.
Thank you all in advance
