What type(s) of router bit(s) did this?

Please take a look at this picture:


Take a look at the base. I know the tabletop is 1.5", so that allows me to estimate that the base is made up of two 2" pieces. The first 2" piece on the base is a straight board. The second is routed in such a way that makes it look like some version of an extremely large ogee bit, but I can't seem to find one that matches this. I'm trying to reproduce that base.

Any suggestions?

The furniture company probably used a molder to make the molding. There are untold thousands of different profiles a person can use. Unless you are trying to match that exactly look for a crown molding bit.

That looks more like an upside down piece of cove molding to me. I have seen small ceiling mold that looks like that.

probably not a router...

Probably a shaper or molder made that profile.

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

You can achieve this same look using stacked moldings.
Base is set in place and a cove mold is set on top. It's not all one piece.
You buy or make your own molding.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
