Does anyone have an online resource that I could use to help getting routed edge details / profiles? What I’m looking for is what type of detail to use for a cabinet edge, other than a simple round or bevel over of course. An example might be if you’re designing a piece in the Federal style, these types of profiles are typical for that period.

Thanks,

No not really. I have a good handle on the different profiles, what I need is where and when to use those profiles.

Chunk,
It seems to me that Fine Woodworking Magazine has had a good number of articles on period furniture and the profiles appropriate to them. Either their on-line service, or their DVD Archive would have these. Neither is free however. Hope this helps.

I have the FWW DVD Archvie. I wasn’t able to find it on the DVD though. That was the first place I looked. I guess I need to improve my searching skills.

Thanks for the heads up.

I don’t think this is quite the information your looking for exactly, but you might want to contact John Fry and see if he can help answer your questions. He did a couple of tutorials on Federal style furniture.
