How is this edge made? Is this a 1” roundover bit?

It kind of resembles a raised panel bit used for making cabinet doors, but, applied to the table top edge.

It looks cool, but, you can find table edge bits that have a nice edge too.

I agree with PurpLev ogee and you vary the depth of cut.

Thanks.
So probably the 21/32” deep bit?

Is there a quality difference between Lee Valley bits and Freud bits?

I personally don’t have experience with LV bits, just knew they had a good photo sample of that bit and the pattern. I only used Freud bits and they are quite good. Whiteside also makes good bit.

PurpLev-

Do you think that is only a 1/4” radius roman ogee bit? I don’t know, seems bigger and chunkier in the pic, but it’s hard to tell…....

Don’t know what the radius is from the pic, but you can do that with a roundover bit by using a smaller bearing to get the quirk at the bottom. The image is deceptive because the profile is routed on the front and back edges giving it the appearance of an ogee, but I’d put money on it being a roundover witha top and bottom quirk.

if that top is 3/4”-1”, than the 1/4 radius seems just about right. (the depth of the cut is 21/32 on the LV bit specs) you can check other mfg. they might run slightly different radii/depths

Another way to get a similar effect is to use a roundover bit with a smaller bearing, though in the picture above that is pretty clearly not a straight up constant radius like a roundover.

It’s definitely and ogee and might be more than one board, a stack molding.

Sorry guys that is not an ogee. That is a qtr. bead, not to be confused with a qtr. round. Most likely done with router. That’s what I would do anyway. It also has a stacked edge. JB

cabmaker-

That’s what I was thinking.

Is it this 1” radius bit http://www.freudtools.com/p-146-beading-bits.aspx with a 1/4” of the bottom of the bit coming out of the router table and then stacked on top of another piece of wood staggered in 1/4”?

I just bought a board of 8/4 to do this.

Am I on the right track?

That looks like an edge bead to me too.
