I'm trying to trim the edge of a 1 and 1/2 inches thick butcher block counter top with a straight edge router bit. However, the router doesn't seem to cut into the wood but it sound more like the flute is turning really fast(expected) and then hit the the wood instead of cutting in. I can actually feel the impact when the bit hit the wood. I'm a complete newbies in wood working, so any little detail matters if you think I'm missing anything, or if it happened to anyone before.
The bit is set so that the bit's cut length cover the entire edge of the butcher block (1 1/2 inches). I also clamp a straight edge on the butcher block to guide the router.
Might the issue be I'm cutting in too deep? I only cut in about a 1/4 of a cm.
I'm using the dewalt router (https://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-12-Amp-Corded-2-1-4-Horsepower-Fixed-and-Plunge-Base-Router-Kit-DW618PKB/301664695)
I used this bit specifically (https://www.homedepot.com/p/DIABLO-1-2-in-x-2-in-Carbide-Straight-Router-Bit-DR12128/100660640)
