Our Convex Edging Bit can be used to rout the rounded flanks of homemade Lincoln logs—a children's classic. Simply cut the profiles and then use a straight bit to cut half-lap dados in the logs so they interlock. In addition, the bit can be used to rout a rounded edge on shelves and table tops. The rounded profile measures 1/2" in length, so it will leave two 1/8" beads on 3/4" stock.

Convex edge router bit
Bought this bit to make "logs" for a birdhouse. Milled the logs and they turned out just like I hope they would. The bit worked great, sharp and a no sand finish. Still building the birdhouse.
Would recommend this bit to make "logs".

Excellent Bit!!!
This bit does not make a log that is exactly like a Lincoln Log, but they are a very close copy. I used some Lincoln Logs that we had laying around to help determine the lengths that needed cut. I have made about 270 linear feet of logs with this bit and it performs flawlessly! This bit permitted me to shape each side in one pass without any kickback issues. Multiple feather boards kept the logs in good contact and my fingers away from the bit during milling. I used a dado blade on my radial arm saw to make the requisite notches. I also used a bandsaw to cut some of the logs in 1/2 (length wise) to provide starter pieces for the rows.

Will this make pieces that will fit with actual Lincoln Logs?
Michael S on Mar 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely will. I found that running them as 3/4 x 3/4 strips on a table mounted router with a power feeder made for an easy operation. Then a zero clearance insert in the table saw with a 3/4" dado blade and a sled to put in the slots. Only do the cut to length last.
What speed should I use? At 21,000 rpm my logs are getting shot right through.
Gary J on Jul 19, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am using mine on a stationary overarm router at about 10000 rpm with good results.
Are you trying to "climb Cut" ?
As small as the diameter of the bit is 15 to 20 k
RPM should be doable.
