QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Looking for ship lap router bit

    EVERYONE seems to be watching HGTV and has been bitten by the ship lap craze.  A basic ship lap joint is just two opposing rabbets that overlap as tight or loose as you wish depending on how rustic you want it to look. You can use a tongue and groove for this, but since it is usually thin material fastened to a wall as opposed to thick flooring that would stand up to wear and tear, usually a rabbet joint is quickest and easiest. Our most versatile rabbeting bit would be:
    https://www.woodline.com/collections/rabbeting/products/rabbeting-bits?variant=16865253703. The multiple bearings allow for various depths of cuts. 

    Material thickness will dictate whether you want to use a tongue and groove cut.  Some have "V" profiles for added detail, but that is not traditional ship lap, but is often used as wainscoting.  They can be found at https://www.woodline.com/collections/tongue-groove-1/products/tongue-groove-router-bits?variant=15147553607.

    If you are unsure of which will work, give us a call with your material dimensions and we can discuss the pros and cons of each.

Easy solution!

If you want to cut a 1/8" slot 1/4" deep, this bit works great.

router bit purchase

Great! Easy to order, great shipping processing. Only improvement suggestion would be if router bit could be packaged in a small case, but that probably would add to cost of packaging.

Thanks for the feedback. Woodline's bits come in plastic boxes, but Amana saves space by packing in retail hang bags for display purposes,
