Save wear and tear and get cleaner cuts with incremental routing
When possible, trim away excess material from your workpieces at the tablesaw or bandsaw before routing. Trace the profile of the bit onto your stock to prevent overcutting, as shown. Whether you're routing an edge profile, sliding dovetail, or any other task that removes a good bit of wood, doing this will save you time, wear on your bits and router motor, and a pile of shavings.
