Straight Router Bits: Straight router bits are among the most common often used.

They come in a variety of cut diameters, most commonly in the range from 3/16″ to 1-1/2″.

Rabbeting Router Bits: Rabbeting router bits generate a straight vertical and horizontal cut, and are designed specially to cut a rabbet in the edge of stuff. Rabbeting is an instance of a “piloted” bit, meaning that a bearing of the top of the bit is used to guide that along the edge of the material. Rabbeting bits usually come in a set that includes a range of pilot bearing diameters, allowing a single one to produce a variety of rabbet dimensions.

Flush Trim Router Bits: Flush trim router bits are guided by a pilot bearing that is the same size as the bit’s cutting radius. They’re used to trim the edge of one material flush with the edge of another object. Trimming a veneered surface flush with a substrate, or using a pattern to create multiple identical shapes is examples. The pilot bearing may be on the top of the bit, at the base of the cutting edge, or both.

Chamfer Router Bits: Chamfer Router Bits produce a bevel cut at a given angle. Chamfer’s are sometimes used to decorate the edge of a material, and can also be used in joinery to create beveled edges for multi-sided constructions.

Edge Forming Router Bits: Edge forming router bits are most often used to cut a decorative edge into a material. The variety of edge forming profiles is practically unlimited, but some of the most common include: Round over bits – Used to cut a rounded edge of a given radius.
Ogee bits – The term “ogee” refers to an “S” shaped profile. Ogee’s are available in a number of configurations; the Roman ogee bit pictured here is one of the most common
Edge beading bits – Used to cut a 1/4 or 1/2 half circle profile called a “bead” into an edge or corner
Cove router bits – used to cut a concave 1/4 circle into a material.

Stile and Rail Bits: These are used in frame and panel construction, primarily for constructing frame members of cabinet and passage doors. These bits cut a decorative profile and a panel slot into the edge of door frame stock, and also a corresponding cut into the end of the material where the frame’s “rail” (horizontal member) meets the profiled edge of the frame’s “stile” (vertical member).
