Well we looked the doors over the best we could before agreeing to the project, and though I expected plywood, (and they may be), the best we could see they are solid pine. The "problem" is that they are painted. However, when I am done we will paint them still another color yet again. It's a cheap way to dress their kitchen up.
No, no inlay will be placed into the routed out area. I went to the grizzly links, nice bits, but I already bought one, and it does not have a bearing, I was planning to let the base guide me. Thanks for the tip on "clock-wise" I had the bit backwards in my mind, sorry.
So it sounds like you expect that letting the base ride against a "stop" all the way around the door, using a 'clock-wise' rotation will keep the router against the rail and it shouldn't wander into the door. Is that correct?
