Trim router and letter template?  Is the lid thick enough for a 1/4" groove?

Yes, the top starts out at 3/4" thick and the curve drops off 1/4" from center to the edge (~3" of distance). There is a 1/4" recess in the center of the bottom to strengthen the illusion of a curve, so there is at least 1/4" of material from edge-to-edge in the center of the top that isn't touched and I think the top is at least 3/8" thick at its thinest point (somewhere about 2/3 from the center to the edge).

The curve is on top is shallow enough that if I keep my letters 1-1.5" tall I think the slope from center to top/bottom of the letter will only be 1/16"-3/32".
