Hard Maple Table Legs?

 Top

I have to route a 1" deep x 3/4" wide slot the length of the leg. What router bit would you recommend? Would an up spiral, help get the material out of the way? also I am running this on a shaper.

I recommend the Amana no.46366 up-cut spiral. The up-cut spiral will help to keep the groove cleaned out during the cut. Remember, shapers do not spin as fast as routers and so you may need to decrease the feed rate.
