I am trying to router a channel in a 1.5" x 2.75" piece of cedar. The channel will be 3/4" deep and 5/8" wide. I would like to use a 1/2 double flute bit I have. The bit is 1 inch deep but my thought is to do three cuts in the middle of the channel to start. Each cut going 1/4 " deeper. I think trying to cut the full depth in one cut is too much ??? Once I have the center of the channel to 3/4" then I planned on doing a single cut on each side at full depth to get the right width. The single cuts on each side would take off another 1/16 " or so, so i would do them at full depth. Does this make sense??
thanks
