I am trying to match the edge on a cabinet door. It is a European style edge with the attached profile. The cove at the top of the picture is 1/4 inch. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have searched high and low for several weeks now and am about at wits end. Ideas of bit combinations would also be appreciated if a single bit cannot be identified.

Thanks

I thought so, but the first curve is a cove not ogee. I did not see a match on MLCS, Eagle America or Peachtree.

Very subtle curvature. May need a custom bit. May be less expensive to get a custom knife for a hand wood profile plane.
+1. :yes: I agree. The top edge profile is a sharp corner instead of a small radius and a cove...see in the circled area.

The sharp corner can be eliminated by not cutting so deep but the profile isn't exactly the same. It probably won't be noticed but the top cove could be cut with another bit if necessary. Only the maker notices small differences in situations like this.
