I'm cutting eucalyptus in an arc for shelf ends. After cutting on the bandsaw I tried cleaning up the cut on my router table using a 12mm pattern bit and a template, feeding from right to left and making a very shallow cut. About 3-4 cm into the cut, the router grabbed the wood and I got kickback (no harm or damage). Tried starting from the other end of the piece - same result. Pictures attached. Why? What shoud I be doing differently?
