Question tounge & groove v-joint

I have purchased some flooring that is tounge & groove. Is there a way to route a v-joint into it. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

If I understand you correctly, you want to add a "v" groove to t & g that you already have. I had to do the same thing some time ago on some cedar t & g. I was most successful when I used a carbide vee groove bit. Whiteside # 1502 is a good example. I attempted to use a chamfering bit, this was fine for the groove side but wouldn't work on the tongue side. Good luck and go slow, I found that if I rushed it, tearout became a big problem.

You need a V bit and preferably your router in a table with a fence and one featherboard pushing down on the wood and another one keeping the wood against the fence. You don't want the wood to be able to move anywhere except where you want it to be, otherwise the v either won't be consistent deep or else it will not be straight.
