Default Wood River Router bit

I was in need of a router bit that would allow me to make a rabbet 3/8 deep x 1/2 inch wide. My biggest cutter would only go 3/8 x 1/2. So, this morning, I drove over to the local Woodcraft store and bought a rabbeting bit made by Wood River. It comes with a stack of different size bearings, so I am all set. A simple bearing change will allow me to cut 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16 and 1/2 inch rabbets up to 1/2 inch deep.

It worked as advertised. I cut a rabbet in the back side of the 92 inch high oven cabinet I am building.

Here's a pic.

Nice looking router. I am kind of new at this business, but I was unable to locate the rabbit in your photo. I did see what looked to me like a beveled edge, but the rabbit eluded me. I feel sort of dumb asking such a question, but where is the rabbit? Thanks for the positive review on the router bit. I have used some wood river drill bits with success but have only used Whiteside router bits.

Sorry about that. I realized later that I took the pic before I started cutting. The rabbet is cut into the side 1/2 inch so the 1/2 inch plywood back will be inset. I will try to get a pic or two and post it here.

Edit. Here are a couple of pics of the rabbet and a sample piece of 1/2 inch plywood test fitted.

Thanks for the clarification, Mike. Looks like a good start to your oven cabinet. Hope you will share pics when you are finished.

Rick, any time you need a "noob question" queried, I'm your man...

Thanks for sharing info about the bit...always helpful to see what you folks use for what purpose...

...but I did have a question about the product description (hope you don't mind me adding to your post)...

The product info states "The anti-kickback design ... limits stock feed rate for safer router operations"...

Can you or someone elaborate for me...? What in the design am I looking for...?

Thanks in advance...Nick

Nick, I don't have a clue. The bit cut smooth with no problems encountered. Having the additional bearings to use, this one bit can do the work of five.
