    Default Tongue and Groove boards

    Saw some pretty wood at Home Depot, and was debating on its usefulness for carving...

    If I glued up two or three boards, using the natural tongue and groove in it to align them, would it be okay to carve?

    I think you would have to rip off the tongue and grove and glue together. The tongue and grove gaps would ruin a carve if you carved down to them.

    It might be good for vector type carvings as they would not go deep into the tongue and groove joints.

    I use tongue and groove scraps for projects. I use the machine to rip cut the tongue and groove off before starting.

    I would probably check the tongue thickness and make my pattern wasn't as deep and use the depth to my pattern accordingly.
