SKU Woodpeckers RG-SET-23

There are nearly as many ways to construct a rabbet as there are applications for them. Whether using hand planes or handheld routers, a durable set of drawers begins with proper layout. Securely nestling a glass inlay in a coffee table requires deliberate scribing and precise router setup. Woodpeckers Rabbet Gauges eliminate the trial and error in rabbeting, whether you're just starting out or have laid out hundreds using only your finger as an edge guide

Trusted by furnituremakers for centuries for its strength and ease of construction, the rabbet joint is often one of the first joints a woodworker learns to make. It's also one that can quickly be taken for granted, as the joint is quite simple to make but even easier to forego in lieu of the weaker butt joint. Our latest OneTIME Tool ® makes laying out rabbets effortless. Each Rabbet Gauge is 4" in length and has four steps, allowing you to lay out rabbets in standard stock thicknesses from a subtle 1/16" all the way up to 3/4" in 1/16" increments.

Setting up your router table to cut rabbets has never been easier. No matter what diameter straight bit you have already in your table, simply position the bit just above the table, set the shoulder of the Rabbet Gauge to the bit, and align your fence to the rabbet gauge. Turn the Rabbet Gauge on its side and adjust the bit height to the rabbet shoulder. Make one pass through the router table or as many as you need, depending on the size and wood. No squinting or awkward adjustment angles, just perfectly sized Rabbets.

Woodpeckers Rabbet Gauges are milled from a single piece of aircraft grade aluminum, meaning there's no opportunity for assembly error or sloppy joints. All Rabbet Gauges are anodized for surface protection and reduced friction as you guide along edge of your stock, ensuring precise marks ready for machining.
