I am building a cedar chest out of oak and I want to line it with cedar. Does anyone know where I can buy a tongue and groove bit that will work with 3/8" thick boards? Most of the sets I see only go down to 1/2". I thought I might cut them on my table saw if I can't find a T&G set. If anyone knows the best way to do this, please let me know.
Thanks, Mark :eusa_thin

Mark,

If you want some sort of an overlapping joint...Consider half lap joint instead on T&G. That would be my recommendation on stock thinner than 1/2".

I can appreciate your wanting to make your own cedar boards for this, but a much easier, and probably cheaper, way to do this is to buy the cedar T&G planking already made. Lowes sells bundles of cedar closet lining that contain boards about 1/4" thick, about 2 1/2" wide, and 8' long. All you would need to do is cut them to length and install them. I once lined a closet with these, and it worked out very well.
