||Like when we made the crown molding detail earlier, we'll
be doing the same thing here, removing stock for the dish a little at a
time. This also lets us see how the dish is turning out. Not deep enough?
Just remove a little more. To start with, set the bit 1/8" above the table.
Pictured at left is the bit being lowered in the router
table with my "Router
Raizer". This tool lets me adjust bit height from above the table,
and without removing the router from the table.

Cable 7539 3hp router
||This is the setup for making the dish. The fence is set
so the center of the bit falls in the center of our shelf. The feather
board holds the shelf tight to the fence. The stops on the fence control
the starting point and finish point. Remember, we're only going to remove
about 1/8" at a time.
Remove the shelf and flip it over....pretty neet, eh?
If you want it deeper, raise the bit and do it all again.
||With your router off, place the work piece between the
fence and the feather board, but don't push it against the table. Slide
the stock against the right stop block and push down on the left side of
the stock till it touches, but don't let the bit touch the stock.
Now start the router and keeping the stock against the
right stop block, push the stock down onto the bit, and begin moving the
stock to the left till it touches the left stop block. When it does, lift
up on the right hand side of the stock to pull it off the bit. Shut off
your router and wait for the bit to stop.
