I’m making new drawers and raised panel doors for my sisters kitchen cabinets. The style of the edge you see in the picture above is what I have on the commercial cabinets in my house. She likes them. I’m relatively new to this. I’ve made a few raised panel doors so I know I can do it but I have never made this edge. I’m needing help on the router bit.
I need to know the type of router bit that makes this edge. I think I’ve found some online but I have the darndest time looking at the bit and visualizing the cut it will make. Also, if the wood will be 3/4 inch I’m finding that bits come in different heights or sizes. Can anyone who knows this stuff tell me a link or model number or even the contour name and size of a bit that I can google to see what will make this drawer edge on 3/4 inch oak so I can purchase the correct one the first time?
Also, the drawer front I’m looking for has a fairly smooth slope to the front edge and sweeps in at the back like in the picture above. Some I’ve seen have a steeper slope and a sharp front edge and don’t sweep in at the back.
