Help with cabinet drawer fronts

I am looking for the right bit or method for replicating these drawer front edges (see attached). I am not sure if it is a multi step process or a single bit that can accomplish this. The deep route on the face is appx 1 1/8".

I am thinking a CNC machine did the routing on this and I don't see how you could do it without one. I hope I am wrong.

It's very possible that profile was designed and made by the cabinet shop that made the cabinets. You might find a router bit which looks similar but there is no standard profiles. Sometimes you can machine parts of a profile with two or three different bits and come up with something real close to to actually match a profile you have to make a cutter to do it. There are places that will make a custom router bit to match any profile you need. You send them an drawing of the profile to full scale and they will make the bit but that can be expensive. https://www.vexorcwt.com/router-bits/ A lot depends on how exact you want the profile to be and how much you are willing to spend to make it happen. There is also custom mills around that will match a profile and make the doors for you but that can get really expensive. I do that on a shaper and I would charge $400.00 just to make the tooling to run it.

I bet you could get pretty dang close with a raised panel jig on a table saw and the right roundover bit in a router table.

A handful of patience is worth a bushel of brains...

I agree. That was also my first thought. It would be at least a 3 step process.

CNC and pricey router bits are not good options for me. The project only calls for 2 drawer fronts.

Looks like there are several good videos for table saw raised panel jigs to create a repeatable process that will get me close.

Thanks for all of the input!

I recreated something similar for my sister by making it two pieces. The base with the round over and slight bevel and then a separate piece for the bevel in the middle. It worked.
