They both look like small roundovers – maybe 1/4”. The depth is set to leave a quirk on the top of the cherry piece, the painted piece looks like two pieces rounded over with no quirk and stacked and offset to give that effect. A dust catcher if ever I saw one.

Guys, i’m not seeing roundovers or Roman Ogees in either of these profiles.

What am I missing here?

I’m seeing maybe a rabbet bit for the first one, with rounded over edges and who knows what for the second one. Maybe a dovetail bit buried in the fence halfway?

I agree with your assessment, noone. The first looks like two passes with a round over bit. The first with the bearing riding on the dresser top, the second with the bearing riding on the side.

The second drawing looks like a low angle dovetail bit, maybe in a template bushing, followed by a pass with a round over bit with the bearing riding in the dovetail cut. Fun experiment.

Both may have had starter passes with rabbet bits.

I found the first one. I Googled ‘table edge options’ and found this pic from a furniture store. I wonder where I can buy this one…..
