Not every face frame and cabinet case go together like a match made in heaven. The frame may slightly overlap the case sides, or hairline gaps may emerge after the glue-up. That's when you need the perfect solution for an imperfect world: a flush-trim V-groove router bit.
These bits look and work much like straight flush-trim bits with one exception: A V-shape groove-cutter extends about 1/16" past the bottom-mounted pilot bearing and cutters, as shown below. This V forms a groove on the joint line between the face frame and the case; the rest of the bit trims the frame edge flush, as shown right.
