Hi roto, just chuck up a rabbet bit in the router with a fence, isolate the bearing so it isn't involved and set the fence out half the thickness of the stock and the height the bit to half the thickness of the stock and run them through.

Hi Roto -
You have your answer from a couple of guys that know their stuff. But just so we're sure we are talking about the same thing, a double-rabbet joint is one in which both boards to be joined receives a rabbet. If both boards to be joined are exactly the same thickness, this type of joint can be faster and easier to produce since the rabbet is a consistant depth, and every board receives an identical rabbet.
This type of joint resembles a shiplap joint, but with the length of the rabbet being exactly 1/2 the stock's thickness. If you are joining pieces end-to-end, or cutting cross grain, be sure to back of the end of your cut with scrap to avoid tear-out.
Visualize removing a square that is 1/2 the thickness of the board. If there is a front and back to your boards, ... Think! I have done one or two on the wrong side and it really made me mad at me.

Welcome to the Forum... there are some really helpful folks here with a wealth of information. Browse the topics and come back often. Don't hesitate to ask questions.
