I’m not sure what the thickness of the wood is, but I found a bit that might work. You would have to raise the bit to the right height to just get the right portion on the wood, that is, if it’s even the right size for the thickness of wood you are using. I circled it in red. This is from Whiteside’s catalog.

It doesn’t look like the bit I found above will work for 3/4. I think it would give the profile you are looking for, but only on 4/4.

I’m take a shot in the dark here James but I wonder if this might have been made with table saw molding head cutter.

Shaper bit, perhaps?

What you are looking for may be called a “table edge bit” – but there are lots of different styles of table edge bits, so it is not quite so straight forward. Do a quick Google image search to see what Imean.

I have a catalogue from an Australian company called Carbitool. It has a bit that is close to what you want but, as you can see, not the right size. They do claim that they can make special bits to any size or detail – please furnish a wood sample, drawing or dimensioned sketch when ordering. Of course, I am sure there would be companies in the US that might offer a similar service.

Good luck finding what you are after

If you’re trying to duplicate that profile, it looks like you’re going to be making several passes with creative holding techniques….. If it’s been done once, it can be duplicated. Study it closely, and check you cutter arsenal and try it.
I think a lot of people don’t know that you don’t really need to use the whole cutting edge of any of your shaping tools. A combinatin of partial profiles can give you custom shapes…. ......... Jerry (in Tucson)
