I'm one of the "anti-router-establishment". Ohhh, I've got three of them and find them a
necessary evil when it comes to carving a top or routing neck pockets, etc. However,
when it comes to body blanks and necks, I use nothing but the sander. Routers can be
brutal, especially in my untrained hands. The key, I believe, is to take off just a whisper
of material at a time and go much slower than what already seems like slow.
Or, chuck it and use the sander you have (belt sanders are a great tool as well). If this
is your only "oops", then you'll come out of this smelling like a professional, lol. It's disheartening
at the moment, I'm sure, but we all have screw-ups. Just back up and regroup and all will
be well in the end.
