Trim design

Customer request that the pictured design is exactly duplicated.
The top molding is easy, but the bottom design looks like it was made from two different router bits, any help from you guys on the bottom design

That is a window stool profile bit, just do a search until you see the exact one you want.

Often the tooling for molding isn't a router bit but a molder or shaper bit which a company makes the blades themselves like this one I made. If it absolutely has to match exactly chances are you would have to have a shop that makes their own blades to custom make a set. That gets expensive, the steel and time to make them is a lot. Another option would be to find a place that makes custom router bits. That would be pricy too but shouldn't be as much.

The fancy stuff is carved, not embossed. There are still companies supplying these, but the embossed versions will look really cheesey when compared to the carved versions.

Making a molding like that is very easy for a one man operation. It requires a shaper and preferably a power feed. You need a lock edge shaper head and a length of knife steel. The pattern is marked out and ground on a bench grinder. Once you are used to doing it, that profile would take about 30 minutes. If you get a head with the bearing you can profile around curves. I got started making moldings with that setup. There was good $ in it doing replacement parts for old buildings. A shaper is one of the most versatile tools in the shop. Good used industrial quality ones are always available and often no more expensive than the new Chinese ones. Since a hand ground setup is likely to be out of balance you need to use a reasonably heavy shaper with a 1.25" spindle. It's pretty simple, worth knowing how.
