I am trying to duplicate the outside of the rail and stiles of some cabinet doors. I think I can do the outside edge with a round over bit on a table. But i don’t have a bit that will reach far enough to do the inside bevel.
Anyone have any ideas?

Ok the link works, I hope someone can help me. I was thinking a round over bit and run the rail on its side throught the router table. Any other ideas?

a raised panel bit for the top and either two passes with a round over or one with a bullnose bit

I agree with roman.
It looks like you could also make the longest (widest) cut on your table saw and then the roundover or bullnose.

Or you might find a shaper bit that could do that. It looks a little too big for the normal router bits.

-- No piece is cut too short. It was meant for a smaller project.

Hey sawdust2 you were right I cut the longest on the table saw and then used two different round over bits on the router table and matched the profile so well you can’t see the difference. Thanks for the help

when in doubt I send or take a sample to Woodcraft or Eagle American and ask the salesmen to see if they have a solution. If you have a molder or know someone that does and need to produce a boatload of something, you can send in a profile or sample and have a simple knife made.
