Router edge


I'm looking at doing this edge on a cut piece of 1"x1" to finish off the bottom edge of my kitchen cabinets. Can I buy a router bit to do this edge, do I need to use a table saw blade, get out my pocket knife and so some carving or what??????

That should be a store bought shape---Go to one of the router bit sites and see if you can find a match---you will not find that one in a Home Depot---

Any box store should have that as a stock molding.

you might get something similar but not exact. i cant get that profile at a big box store or at my trim supplier.. its definitely something youd need a shaper for or atleast shaper knives outfitted on a table saw. it can be done on a router table but it would require quite a bit of setup time and several passes

The bit will cost more than the molding....

I'll have to check out that web site...I don't think I've ever paid less than $35 for a large bit

That's not the Variable Beading bit though.

Router edge


When I need to exactly replicate a molding I take a piece of step flashing or other scrap tin and trace the profile onto it. Then I cut along the lines with my tin snips and fine tune it with a file. Bring it to a tool maker and have him make a cutter for my molding machine.
He can bang one out on his milling machine in a couple of minutes, and its cheaper than buying a router bit, assuming you can find one to match. Of course my cutters are made from HS steel and not carbide, but I rarely need to mill up enough stock to need the durability of carbide. Plus HS steel sharpens quickly if needed.
