So they no longer make the hutch for the dining room sideboard my wife bought years ago. Which is good. Because now I can build one! And I’d obviously like to match the style of this pine wood construction. Here’s the thing though…
The sides apparently use Frame & Panel construction, though just for design; they’re not actually doors. What’s interesting – and perhaps odd – is that the infill panel sits right into the rail and stile grooves, but the molding inside the panels is not coming from the rail/stile router bit. It’s another molded piece that’s just glued in and creates a raised treatment. (Pic below.) So…
I think I can identify a close enough panel profile and get the router bit for that. And using a rail/stile flat profile is easy. (Though kind of lame to spend money on such router bits I’d likely only use for this project.) But what then? Where can I find the molding? I guess what I’m asking is if anyone recognizes this molding to the degree that they could recommend a router bit where I could make some from stock, or a supply house that might sell something similar. (I’d still have to rabbet the molding to inset it into the panel, but that’s not hard either.)
Any clues? Thanks!
