Question sawdustmaker

Hi,

I am making raised panel doors using white birch. The router is a
Bosch 1613EVS, the bit is a Whiteside 8501. Routing crossgrain the first two panels had a little tearout, mostly small chips which I filled. I tried slowing the router down from 16,000 to 12,000 rpms and using a scrap board endgrain it took big chunks. Can you help?

Thanks

Hello Richard, and welcome I think that it all depends on the wood, if You are on the inboard side of the wood, or the outboard. By that I mean, the inside is where the grain pattern tends to bow away, or toward You. The type of wood Your working with, The size of the bite, and the size of the bit. An awful lot to think about. The kind of wood, and how dry it is are also factors. I am guessing that in other areas, You will see fuzzing. I think that if You are having smaller chips, that You can repair with a filler, and get it to look good, You will be OK. You could try a skin cut on the finish cut, or two, you may get a Little less chip out. I wish I had better news, however, i don't. Elm is a rather long and strong grain, Some other woods will cut better. The good news is that others do it a lot more that I do. may be that They are better at it.

welcome: White birch is a son of a beech! I find that if i take multiple cuts making the very last cut about 1/8 there is less tear out. Joe

My sentiments exactly! I made a very short cut and then made a knife cut across the grain and that worked! I did take small step cuts not more than 1/4" at a time. VERY tedious as I had four pairs of doors.
Thank all of you for your help.
