Default Making Shiplap Siding

06-04-08

Hi,

This question may have been asked many times, so I apoligize in advance for that.

Anyway, I am building a shed and I want to use a specific type of Shiplap siding. It's very simple, but I cannot find a router bit (or set) anywhere that can produce the cut I am looking for. I've attached some files of what I am looking for. In the two images I prefer the more square cut as opposed to the rounded out cove type of cut. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
Dan

Good links Ken. A panel raising bit for one end and a straight or rabbiting bit for the other is the answer. Vertical panel raising bits tend to cost less and require less power than horizontal panel raising bits. Making a good fence to support the wood for vertical bits is simple enough. For serious production a Horizontal router table is the better choice.
