What router bit makes this profile?

Hello everyone. I need to make a couple of cabinets matching the profile in the pictures. Can anyone please tell me what router bit to use? It would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

It was most likely done with two or three separate bits, a half-round, a cove, and a round-over. If it was done with a single bit, it's highly unlikely you'll find one like it, or it's for a large commercial piece of equipment, but you can replicate it with standard bits.

It is a table edge router bit.

“Door and drawer edge profiles” is where you should be looking. Might need separate cutters for top and bottom if you can’t find an exact match.

There are no dimensions in the photo ....

WE have no idea of the size of the profile, but Big Jim seems to have got it close. Woodmaster molder/planer has over 600 profiles to choose from if you can't find a router bit or combination there of. Woodworkers who own the Woodmaster will make up moldings if you contact them... Craig's List or directly through Woodmaster?

It may also be a shaper cutter. Easy to check them out at Grizzly Industrial shaper cutters, BUT now you'll need to find a shaper or a shop with one. A cabinet shop may also have the desired profile in their stock, either ready made OR a cutter like you need.

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)

Alvaro - welcome to the forum.
do you have a robust router table or shaper ?
this is not a project for the hand-held router.
tell us a little about you, your project and your skill levels.
the router bit that Jim suggested will work for the top cut.
but you need to follow through with the Round Nose Bit for the bottom cut.
here is how the bits would work for the profile.
and again, this is not a process for the hand-held router.
this is a very dangerous tool and due care must be taken to heart.

are these doors going to be painted or clear coated ??
if they are going to be painted, you could run all the doors through this
profiling process to make them all look alike.
I would not suggest it if they are to be clear coated as the newly routed
edges will not match the color of other panel wood.
good luck in your project.

That profile was probably made using a single pass using commercial shapers and custom made cutters. If one were going to make a mile or two of these edges, these guys would make a custom profile cutter for you.

However, the cost would almost certainly be prohibitive for a one-off project. My granddad made a few repetitive pieces of furniture an had several weird shaped cutters made for his shaper (which I now have), but I have had little use for most of them.

If you aren't made out of money, probably best to go with what the others have suggested and make multiple passes with multiple bits.

Another $000,000,000.02 worth of advice,
Mark

Sorry, I dropped the ball, I was looking at the top profile and totally overlooked the bottom profile.
