I’m unable to buy these two profiles locally, so my choices are to have a custom run of each or buy some router bits and get it done myself.

I’m thinking the latter, since I only need about 100 LF of one and 200 LF of the other.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

Hello noone,

I certainly have an idea, but first need the profil sizes.

probably a panel raiser bits depending on the size. If it were me I would look at premade moldings and see if you could make something work

Here’s the catalog I have access to here in Jacksonville, FL.

Shawn- Do you see anything in here I can use? The limit of my creativity says “no”.

Dutchy- I am looking up the profile sizes now.

looks like a cove bit (without the bearing and running the board flat) in the middle. and a round over bit at the bottom (with the wood standing on end).
depending on the profile of each, you might can connect them, or you might have to run it over the table saw to connect them. (to remove the middle)

but im just a hobbiest haha i have never done it before (but from my chair, it looks like if you ran those two, it would match up.

Thanks.

Any other options for the build-up on the top of the wainscotting? Anything from this catalog that I can put together?

The one you are looking for for the base looks like a French Provincial Bit to me.

I bought a “small” 7/8in French Provincial Bit for just $32.50 from Magnate off of Amazon. I used it for the sticking in a small door:

A more traditional size for the molding you are wanting to do would be the 1 1/8in Whiteside 3280 French Provincial Molding Router Bit 1/4” BD 1-3/4” D X 1-1/8” CL X 3-1/8” OL for $94.99 from WoodCraft:

Many profiles can be made with one bit it you have a good side router router table and speed control.
Like these :

well the smaller one is just an ogee on edge, but for the other, I’m afraid you’ll most likely only find that one in a shaper cuter.
