Five years ago when we built our home, the carpenter used a technique that created a "V" channel for every seam in the car siding on our ceiling, rather than simply butting or trying to hide the seams. I should have paid more attention because now I'd like to duplicate that in my basement. Anyone able to help me out?

Actual car siding has the chamfered "V" seams....It comes that way. Your carpenter must have been using tongue and groove boards with no pattern and running the pattern on them.

However, to answer your question, the groove can be cut in the wood using a router and a diamond-shaped bit. The router would need a straight edge of some sort or a fence.
