Router Bit Shark Nose Profile - does it exist?

Hi there,

Can anyone please suggest a source for a router bit with a shark nose profile? - I can't seem to find it anywhere on the internet (yet it is a fairly common profile in the stone world for edging benchtops). In case the attached jpg doesn't show, it's essentially a 45 degree chamfer with the sharp edge rounded over i.e. bullnose. I'm trying to make handleless drawer fronts (18mm MDF).

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/tips.

I'm no expert but I haven't seen a bit like that. You could use a chamfer bit followed by a small bullnose bit. Alternatively you could cut the angle on a tablesaw with a high fence, again followed by a small bullnose router bit.

Although that exact profile may or may not exist, there are plenty of other choices in door/drawer edge bits that accomplish the same thing

In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

the bevel is 45 degrees

Do that laying flat on the table saw. Then round over the sharp edge using one of these:

or this:

Sand the intersection smooth and you will be pretty close.

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)
