Is the pipe round, square or rectangular and what are it's dimensions?

If it' a pipe then it's round. Shapes are called tubes.

I would hold it in a vise and drill some holes after punching with a awl and the try a small straight bit or a jig saw or a Dremmel type tool. If you have many then make a jig.
Good luck.

make a three piece V block to rest on the pipe...
cut a rectangle in the flat 1st compensated for a bushing or net size it for a bearing guided bit ...
clamp the V blovk on the pipe and have at it...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

It would be a lot simpler to use a jig saw, multi tool or a Dremel tool. A router without building a jig would be dangerous and probably not very controllable. IMO.......

After bit more thought...
your jig could be in the shape table..
the pipe rests/held in place between the legs and the router rides on the top...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Apparently N/A has solved his question(?)...
I'm with Gary; starter holes and my jigsaw. That would be my weapon of choice.

Maybe use a 2" holesaw to gain access into the pipe (2" x 3" )
