    When should one use a larger diameter flush trim bit (1/2" or 3/4") ?

    I tried something very similar to this yesterday using 3/4" white pine for the work piece and a piece of plywood for the template. Less than halfway through the trimming process a large chunk of the pine ripped off. I don't know if I was going too fast, or trying to take too much off with the router, but it was very frustrating.

    Good video, looked complete to me.

    This video seems to finish before the end. i.e. George says: "at this point I can turn on the router", and we don't get to see the routing.

    You could at least finish the video.

    Was there more to this video? Weird place to stop.
