Shorten the z length of you machine or at least move your work piece all the way up to the gantry, most routers are 1-3″ looks like your at 5 or 6. Every half the length of the z is 2 times as rigid. The more rigid you keep the spindle the easier the cuts are on it. You have a really long z for a router. You feeds and speeds might be off or maybe you chose the wrong endmill, Are you using a router bit, what size endmill, how many flutes? I’m pretty sure you can mill that in 2 passes pretty easy if you have a very short Z. I did 1/4″ plus a little into the MDF spoil board in 1 pass. very easily.
