Topic tags/keywords: router bit router profile trim

Hi! I’m interested in replicating a trim profile and I cant find a router bit that will give me the profile I want. Can someone point me in the direction of where to look for the the name of the router profile in the attached photo? Is this a custom Moulding bit used to make this trim? I tried to gray out an area of the piece that I’m not interested in. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Jason

Do you need a long run this profile? I’m a bit old school and if only a short run, I would do it in two passes with two custom ground plane irons for my Stanley 45… No router bit needed. The old combination planes are amazing. We often forget that the unique profiles on old furniture and interior trim was done by hand.

I doubt you’ll find a router bit with that profile, but you can build it up. Stumpy Nubs made a good video on it. The only issue is that you’ll have to do some work to figure out exactly what you are dealing with. It also helps to have a tilting router lift.

Thats what I was afraid of. I think i might just use a similar molding profile that I already have and call it done! Thanks for the advice!
