A router bits profile is the shape of the bit's edge and the contour of the resulting cut.


Common profiles include:

  • Straight Bits make straight cuts such as dadoes and grooves.
  • Rabbeting Bits cut a notch along the edge of a workpiece.
  • Flush-trim Bits trim the edge of one workpiece to match the edge of another.
  • Chamfer Bits cut a bevel on the edge of a workpiece.
  • Round-over Bits soften the edge of a workpiece. They come in different radiuses.
  • Beading Bits cut a rounded decorative edge.
  • Molding Bits combine edge-forming profiles into one bit.
  • Specialty Bits such as dovetail, stile-and-rail, and panel-raising bits are used to do specific tasks.
