We shed some light on how to use these tricky bits.

If you've considered making your own custom windows or french doors, but thought the task was a little too involved, here's a bit set that helps you get great results without a lot of fuss. Window sash sets consist of two bits like those at left. With them you can make traditionally styled rail-and-stile frames with coped joints and a rabbeted side for accepting glass. You can also make the narrow sash bars and muntins for holding multiple panes of glass (our window below shows four panes, but your window or door may have many more depending on its size). All of the coped joints are reinforced with tenons for long-lasting durability.

Because you will plow these bits through 1-3/8"-thick stock, they come with sturdy 1/2" shanks. For safety and good results, use them with a router rated at 1-1/2 hp or more mounted in a table. All set? Let's go through the easy steps in using this bit.
