Threnching as shown in the sketch above is just a plain flat bottomed groove in a piece of timber. It could be halving joints or it could be check outs in wall plates for studs. It could be housings in the bookcase ends or grooves lengthwise for p anelling. Smaller jobs can be done by a router but larger more serious work is done with a dado or trenching head. .
This quick sketch shows one that may be used in a bench saw. The defining feature of these cutter heads are the saw blade or spur cutters either side and just in front of the cutters that make for neat cuts across the grain.
