Trimming & Cutout Bits
Cut complex shapes, trim unnecessary material and create clean, beveled edges with our wide selection of trimming and cutout bits. With woodworking, it's the small details that stand out the most. These router bits and accessories will help you build pieces that look carefully and professionally crafted, without the time and effort of doing it all by hand.
When working with plywood, heat activated edge banding is an excellent way to hide the exposed ply of the board. Once you've applied the edge banding, however, it will need to be trimmed. You can use a utility knife to do the job, but you'll achieve a much more uniform result in a fraction of the time using a bearing flush trim bit. These edge forming bits sit flush against the surface of your board as you cut, so you can trim off any excess without worrying about damaging your piece.
With a plunge router and a few fine trimming and cutout bits, whole new techniques become available. By following a template, you can use these high-speed surface forming bits to etch lettering into wooden signs, or even cut out intricate pieces from solid wood. Woodworking router bits offer a welcome alternative to band saws for this purpose because the tool itself can be moved around, and bearings attached to the bit can allow for easy use of templates.
For fine joinery, a suitably shaped router bit can be a great help. Use our trimming and cutout bits to make flawless box joints, dadoes and more. The precise sizing of these power tool accessories means you can create slots with very specific measurements, ensuring joints that fit snugly without the help of fasteners.
A good router is a dedicated woodworker's most prized possession, but it's nothing without the proper bits. Invest in multiples sizes of trimming and cutout bits to get great results on all your projects.
