Cove cutter produce a radius bottomed groove for guttering applications such as worktops or they can be used for 3D profiling with tool paths on CNC Routers.
A cove cutter is a type of cutting tool used in woodworking and cabinetry to create cove-shaped profiles on the edges of wooden boards or panels. It is typically used in combination with a router or a shaper machine.
The cove cutter features a rounded cutting edge that is shaped like a concave curve. When the cutter is moved along the edge of a board or panel, it removes material to create a concave profile with a smooth, curved shape. The depth of the cove can be adjusted by changing the height of the cutter in the router or shaper machine.
Cove cutters come in a variety of sizes and shapes, depending on the size and shape of the desired cove profile. They can be used to create simple or complex cove profiles, such as quarter-rounds, half-rounds, and ogees.
Cove cutters are commonly used in cabinetry, furniture-making, and other woodworking applications where a decorative profile is desired on the edge of a board or panel. They can be used on a variety of woods, including hardwoods and softwoods, and can also be used on other materials such as plastics and composites.
