Cabinetry & Joinery Bits
Joinery is the process of joining wood together by cutting out shapes which slot together and interlock to make a perfect join. This is usually done without the use of nails, screws or other fasteners. These joints are strong because they take full advantage of the wood's properties and grain direction. Cabinetry incorporates the embellishment and decoration of wooden objects with panels, bevels and edgings. These processes used to involve many hours of work with hand joinery tools. With the power tool accessories that are readily available, a table router produces perfectly milled joints quickly and easily.
Router bits and accessories have solid carbide or high speed steel construction. Micrograin carbide tips maintain the bit's cutting edge sharpness for an extended period of time. Some blades have a nonstick coating that reduces drag, and prevents corrosion and pitch build up on the blade. Use smaller diameter bits with single speed or low HP routers.
For surface forming projects, you'll find traditional or corner beading bits, cove bits, bevel bowl bits and many other types of cabinetry hardware. There are bits that cut raised panels for doors using ball bearing pilot guides, and with some you can create stunning glass panel doors. For wood joinery projects you'll find bits for cutting dovetail joints, tongue and groove joints, and very strong finger joints used to join wood edge to edge, or end to end. There are even specialized bits for installing sash windows and panel V joint bits for joining surfaces that are not vertical.
