Roman ogres are extinct, along with Bavarian elves and Norwegian trolls—or do you mean “ogees”? A built up plywood door with applied moldings is certainly a legit way to do this. Also consider a vertical panel cutting bit for your router (I’m assuming it has a 1/2” collet). A 2 1/4 h.p. router should be able to handle it. These get the profile the long way instead of horizontally. Horizontal panel raisers need a powerful router and router table. If you want to try the vertical panel raiser (Rockler has them), you could build a makeshift router table out of plywood, because even a vertical bit isn’t something to try freehand. For one thing, you have to use a tall fence. Hope that all works out okay.
Sorry for the wisecrack. Sometimes I lose self control. Ogee is pronounced “Oh gee.”
