Clamped part with pattern attached in drill press and drilled hole for saber saw blade.

Then clamped part in vise to rough cut opening with saber saw
staying about 1/4" away from pattern edge.

Image shows finished rough cut hole ready for router edge milling.

Check router bit position before milling out opening. A standard carbide 1/4" shank pattern bit with bearing is used.
