Router bit help
« on: January 29, 2018, 09:59 PM »
Hi!  I am striking out trying to find a particular router bit patter for some cabinets I am about to make.  Can anyone point me in the right direction to find the outside edge pattern in the attached picture?  From edge of cabinet to end of cut is 1" and the total depth of cut is 1/4".  You may notice it has two beads on the outside edge.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have combed through MLCS, Lee Valley, Freud, and some Eagle America.

Probably done on a molder with a custom knife set.

Very well could be. That's very helpful.  I wonder if I can get close to it?  Problem I see is that aren't many bits (especially vertical bits) that allow me to cut down only 1/4" into the surface of the wood while also getting any bead pattern on the edge.

cut with chamfer bit and then go over with small molding bit?  Any suggestions for me?  Thanks!!

Is this a cabinet you already have?  If so, you could probably take to a millwork shop or to a supplier of architectural moldings, not big box store, and see if they can make for you.  This will probably be costly.  The other thing that comes to mind is maybe you could build up that profile from multiple profiles that are available.

Is it something like this Cavetto bit ?

"This range of two flute cutters produces the traditional cavetto profile, which is often used for edge decoration on furniture. The bearing assembly may be completely removed, thus allowing the cutter to be used for panelling work. A TB216 bearing (order separately) may be substituted for the bearing supplied with the cutter. This will remove the bottom quirk from the profile"

It will go to 40mm diameter (3/4 radius)

or one of these

Titman also offer a custom tooling service.

They are in the UK but should ship to where you are

With multiple bits you might be able to replicate it.  The corner detail looks like a beading profile

I think you can do that in two passes , maybe three depending on exactly how that bead is situated. Run the wide flat rabbet first. Then bead the edge. Rabbet with whatever means ..... router , table saw, etc.  I have been able to reproduce quite a few unique profiles by sequencing several different bits. Sometimes the sequence to make it work takes some figuring but yours looks pretty doable.

Hard to tell from the pic but it looks like a finger pull. I just had a router bit made for a profile similar.
Cost around $275.00 and takes about 2 weeks.

Where did you get your router bit made?
