Joinery Series Shaper Tool Set
Our clients have always asked us for our advice on tooling up their shapers. Just as there’s a short list of essential hand tools every woodworker should own, there are some timeless shaper cutters which perform the fundamental cuts almost every project will require- rebating, grooving, tenoning, and profiling. Together as the Joinery Series, they’re available for an advantageous set price.
For ten years, we’ve worked with clients making just about every project you can build with a shaper. This set contains the best advice we can give on tooling up your machine. No matter what you make, or how you put it together, these cutters provide the foundation for your work. Each is engineered with industry leading balance and design. This set also includes a T20 torque wrench for precision and confidence in your knife changes, a tub of tool cleaner for steel-body tools, as well as a pair of Rangate cut-resistant gloves- let us know your size preference!
We optimized this set with the right blend of affordability and longevity. Our Rabbeting Cutter and Adjustable Groovers feature carbide inserts treated with our industry-leading NaDia diamond process, which build less friction for a cleaner cut and less wear on the edges- giving you an increase 3-4x more lineal feet cut before replacement. Our Profile Cutter contains 7 HSS profiles and hundreds more available to order, to give you maximum flexibility and affordability for short-run profile work.
Standard orders for the Craftsman Series are for 1-1/4" bore tools. We can produce sets at other bore sizes upon request.

1 Shear Rabbeting Cutter
1 8-15mm Adjustable Groover
1 15-30mm Adjustable Groover

The Story of the Joinery Series
We developed this set in partnership with Alpine Technical Workshops, which we have been proud to support since the beginning. Alpine has welcomed woodworkers from across North America and beyond- from northern Canada to New Orleans, from Maine to Hawaii, to places like the Virgin Islands, Australia, and even Bhutan. As you can imagine, these woodworkers are at all stages of woodworking production, building very different things, in all kinds of different ways.
Despite the variety, these tools are a constant for all joiners. The fundamentals- a clean rabbet, adjustable grooving, short-run profiling for those one-off jobs- don’t change, no matter what kind of work you do. If you’re not using any of these tools yet, chances are, you’ll find yourself in need of them, and sooner rather than later. That's why we built this set. After 10 years of feedback from our clients, we're confident these tools will be used often in your wood shop today, tomorrow, and 10 years from now.
