Rockler Louver Router Bit

Ever wish you could really see what it is that a particular router bit does before you buy it? Maybe you're having a hard time visualizing the profile? Or have you thought about getting a certain router bit, but haven't because you were unsure about exactly how to set it up? Router bits can be expensive, and what if you're not really sure that the bit you're considering does what you need it to do?

We're coming out with new, short videos on some of the less common pieces from our line of Rockler Router Bits that will help ease the uncertainty. Take a look at these first examples, and see what the Louver Bit or the Trim Router Bit Kit can do for you!

There'll be more Rockler Router Bit Videos coming, and we'll preview them here for you as they are completed.

After watching, let us know your thoughts. Did the video help you understand a bit you weren't familiar with? Did it give you new inspiration on how you could use a bit? Do you have ideas on how the short videos might be even more helpful? Chime in with your opinion in the comments below. We'd love to hear what you think.

    I like both of these videos. I think it is a great idea to have this type of video available. Perhaps you could make a collection of these available at
    Rockler.com, with links from the differnt bits.

    Thanks Jeremy - we will be adding more, and we're putting them on both YouTube and the Rockler site, so keep your eye out for them!

    The louver video did help! I've seen this bit before and wondered how it made "real" louvers. I never even heard of fake louvers.

    I recently bout the louvered bit and feel confident I will be able to make the louvered panels. Once I build the panels what is the best way to mount them in the frame? I am not sure if I need to worry about expansion and contraction. Are these built similar to raised panel doors? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the comment, Ryan. You're right - you'll need to take expansion and contraction into account. Recall that the vast majority of expansion occurs across the grain, so in this application, expansion room is likely to be most critical at the top and bottom of the frame. A rule of thumb is to allow about 1/8 inch for each foot of width. When calculating the amount, you'll of course want to take into account the current moisture content of the wood, compared to extremes in humidity that it's likely to encounter in the future. Hope this helps.
