Great vid Stumpy. I’ve been building moldings using various sections of router bits for years.

Here's an example.

Back in late seventies and Early 80 the work I did for people always had my own brand of mouldings. I always like to give them something that no one else could buy from a store. Doing a combination of passes and bits.
Sometimes it took more material.
Back then they didnt have as many profile mouldings in lumberyards either. Like NOW !

A few basic moulding planes do the same thing….multiple passes, angles,etc.
