« Part 2: Stocking Up. Part 3 of Custom Dishwasher Panel Progress series Part 4: V's and Splines and a little advice needed »

New Joinery Option


In my cabinet project I milled up stacks of tongue and groove beadboard. I never even thought about making it with grooves on both sides and milling splines until I read an article on Finehomebuilding.com (which I highly recommend; get a subscription to their online content).

Cutting only grooves simplifies the joinery and set-up time by a huge amount.


Beadboard calls for just 2 bits, though you could run the grooves on the tablesaw and dispense with the slot cutter. This is a 1/4” slot cutter set to 1/2” depth.


Setting the height: I mark a line and eyeball it.


After a test cut, I needed to raise the bit.


Groovin. I run three passes. One lite pass away from the bearing. One against the bearing, and one on the opposite face to center.


A finished board.

Looking good John. I agree Fine Homebuilding, like Fine Woodworking is a must have for me. The online versions of both are amazing resources.

You also don’t have to have the height perfect if you keep the same side of the boards down. Close is good enough. A lot quicker than tongue and groove.

I thought about that, but I like to keep my options open by having the freedom to use either face up later on.
