I have 2" thick stock (4-5" wide pine planks) to edge glue. I'm
considering a butt joint or a glue joint. I've searched for
glue-joint router bits, but the maximum cutter height found was 1.5"
which means it is for a board up to 1.5" thick. Does anyone know of
a (1/2" shank) glue-joint router bit that will cut 2" thick stock in
one pass? TIA
Two or more pieces of material are joined together with glue. The
resulting bonded area of the assembly is referred to as a glue joint.
I'll bet he's referring to a finger joint e.g.
No, but even if I did I wouldn't bother using it. A clean, butted
edge is plenty strong. If you want the glue joint for alignment,
biscuits or a spline would serve as well. Better, in fact, as any
little vertical movement would mess up results from the bit. Which is
true with any captured bit; i.e., one cutting top and bottom
