You will need at least three bits to make the door as pictured. Freud, Amana, Carbide Processors and MLCS (and others) all make sets that may fill your needs.
Search for cabinet making router bit sets.

How many doors are you planning on making? Will you be making more of these doors down the line?
Rail and stile bits vary widely in price and quality. If you plan on making 10 doors a set of bits from MLCS would be the ticket. 30 or more I would drop a few more $ and get better bits.

This molding was made with a molding machine and the set of knives for the molder were ground to the specific pattern. Doubt that you will be able to duplicate other than trying to make it in multiple sub pieces and fastening it together as a layup.

If you know someone with a molding machine you could have www.moldingknives.com make a set of knives but they are not cheap. They will make knives to fit Logosol, W&H, Shop Fox, Baker, Woodmaster, Jet, Powermatic, Craftsman, General International, RBI, Foley-Belsaw, King, Craftex, Weinig, SCM, Silver, Holyick, Leadermac and virtually every other brand of molder and shaper.

Good luck.

I actually called MLCS and they have bits very close to what I need. As for fastening pieces cannot I just pass rails and stiles on one side, then change the bit and run it from the other side ?

It would depend on the design of the molding and the bits design, depth of cut and how you blend the two passes of different bits. More than likely you would have to make multiple passes increasing the depth of cut with you fence.

Depending on how many doors you are having made, probably easiest (but not the least expensive route) to have the molding made and then customize by cutting yourself. Company will want you to order 100 LF+ and will charge you for making the blades Finding a single raised panel bit in this exact profile will be next to impossible.

Freud makes a panel cutter router bit which is similar to that used in OP reference door.

Look at the Freud 99-510 http://www.amazon.com/2-3-Dia-Raised-Panel-Quadra-Cut/dp/B0000225YE see if that works for you.

Thanks but there is million bits like that for the panel. What is unique in that door is the stile and rail profile.

As I said above the rail and style stock was made by a molder with special knives not with router bits, and yes the Freud bit is for the panel. Also you are correct there are many panel bits out there.
