Topic tags/keywords: joint tongue and groove v tongue and groove router

I need to make a v-tongue and groove joint as pictured above. I normally use the router or table saw to make tongue and grooves. What are the ways to make the chamfer on each side of the joint for the V groove? What other ways besides buying a v-tongue and groove bit set or using a hand plane to put the edge on?

Thanks Gregg

Table saw for the chamfer should be fine.

+1. Or chamfer or V-groove bit in a router (table-mounted would be my preference)

I think Grizzly may have a router bit set that makes the Vee t & G.

Yes, just checked. C 1242. But it ain’t cheap.

I will try the tongue and groove and a v-groove bit on the router table. Thanks for responses.
