I believe what your describing is termed.........at least here,as reeding.We've used it to beyond words in several ways.The least of which is,as the main focal,vert part of an apron(usually about 2-4 inches high)under some stupid azz cool Paladian(sp)set of windows(interior side).Here at the estate I used it on the fr door surround...below a horizantal Terne metal section,on a pediment.Albeit in a "hillbilly" or if one wanted to be PC......."primitive"Federal period sort of way.
Interestingly,its the same "basic" system for creating arrows in/for archery needs.Its simply a moulding head.........have used them on both TS's and shapers that creates a series of,duh....reeds(in segments of 3's N 4's).The stock needs to be pretty gauldang close thicness when producing arrows,cause yoy got to flip it to produce a round shaft.In your case its a single pass over the head.TS's work better,believe it or not cause you have more range on widths.We usually make'm up in 10" widths.Then do a cut off at whatever length suits.
Its a fine profile that dosen't get the respect that it deserves.Good luck with your project,BW
Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.
