I have a shaper and a router to fall back on but I really like the idea of using the cnc for this and found the video below. They begin using the wide bit at 2:48.

Making a clamp similar to what they use for the smaller ones should be fairly easy and guessing those bits were made for the cnc as they don't have bearings, but honestly can't see why having them would make a difference if the setup is correct. They won't be an issue with the larger bit as I can remove them from those.

Making decent progress on the clean out now and hope to have the new shop finished early next month. Once I feel comfortable using the cnc, I'll give it a try.

The only limit to what can be done is the skill level of the operator.

I've used several standard router bits over the years, but always remove the bearings first.

Here is a youtube video I posted a few years ago showing a curved door rail being cut in a single pass. I cut the raised panel as well, using two passes. I used a plunge raised panel cutter to cut the profile to the depth I needed, then used a 3/8" compression bit to cut the remaining depth. I held the panel in place with a vacuum jig.
