Due to limited space, I plan on doing some faux raised paneling. I saw on line a picture of the trim I want to use but I can’t find the appropriate profile router bit. Any suggestions.

If you’re talking about the boxes in the lower part of the picture, the trim was made on a shaper or moulder with special bits or knives. To duplicate that with a router you’ll need to do it with several bits (at least three), each one matched to a part of the profile. You’ll also have to take many multiple passes with each bit on each piece. Unless you need a special wood type, why make your own? Everything in that pic is available in any big box improvement store in paint or stain grade.

Have your say...
