Help Identifying the Right Bit/Tool

Help Identifying the Right Bit/Tool

Can someone please help me identify the tool and/or router bit that would be used in making molding like in the attached picture?
My grandfather made me a wonderful bookshelf many years ago that I am now attempting to duplicate. Unfortunately he has since passed away and I am unsure what he used to make this particular edge molding.
Thanks… Any feedback would be appreciated.

We have an introduction section. It would be nice for you to say a few words about yourself. In your control panel, you can list hobbies, occupation, or any other points of interest. You can also list your general location, so that may be considered in giving answers in relation to seasonal criteria.

How high (tall) is that moulding?

Molding

Cabinetman,

Thanks - I filled in a couple of details about myself

I am almost positive this is made of a normal old 2x4 that was ripped down to about a 1/2 inch thick.

TimPa,

Thanks - I googled triple bead router bits and I think you are right.

I really appreciate the quick response.

So, it sounds like if comes from a 2x4, the moulding is 1˝" high, by ˝" thick. You may be able to get the proper spacing with a router bit like this.

If not, and you need to carry a top and bottom bead, you may need a moulding head for your table saw, to use a cutter like this.

Nice... I was not really aware I could get a molding knife for my table saw... I might get one of those just so i can make my own molding for other projects.

Now that I know what I am looking for I think i will make out alright.

Thanks again.

If you look at the MLCS online catalog, you will find a "multi-bead" bit that might work for you. Here is the link...

These router bits will be carbide whereas if you go with the tablesaw inserts, they will not be carbide and will not last nearly as long.
