If your dowel ends up looking like a threaded screw, you're moving the router too fast. Move the router very slowly — but fast enough so it's not standing still (a rate of about Vu" per second).

If the dowel "chatters" as it's spinning, ► lower the speed of the drill slightly. If this doesn't help, tape a Vf-thick block to the base plate, behind the bit until carpet tape. The block keeps the dowel from whipping.
