Default Plunge routing jig for MFD doors

Short of purchasing an expensive jig, will a frame around the door about 1/2" higher than the door thickness serve as a good router guide? Using a DW618PK there is about 2 1/2" distance from the door edge to the edge of the routed groove. Does anyone see any problems that may crop up?

Would test this out on a scrap-able assembly.
Would not try this at home

To be on the safe side why not lay a board the same thickness of the door down next to the door, something that will give a little more support.

Thanks, I have a lot of scrap pieces. Less expensive than a 4x8 sheet of MFD.

Nice observation, sometimes new ideas don't account for safety, I'll give it a try.
