spiral bits with template guides work well, especially if you sneak up on your final dimension by using different guide diameters.

Also, if you are experiencing tear out trimming the outside edge to final dimension, sometimes it works if you "break-up" the long grain by making several smaller cuts along the long grain side. This way, if the bit catches, it can only pull a small chunk out instead of a large sliver.

Of course, the old rule still applies, the more special the piece of wood you are working on, the more likely an Ooops is to occur.......
