Need a profile compatible with Shaker style kitchen doors. This is what I’ve come up with but I’m open to suggestions.

I’m thinking I would make it as shown if you can decipher what I drew. I will be painted. I’m thinking glue and pin nail the bevelled strips on.

I’d do two square blocks attached to a piece with angles on each end… fewer angled pieces to make.

This would also keep the pieces you’re putting angles on larger. Much safer operation, and easier to get consistent results.

I think it could be done with a bird’s mouth Octa Router bit, make the entire cylinder then trim the horizontal and vertical face. That would make your glue-up a lot easier. especially clamping as you could use large worm drive hose clamps. Sized right one glue-up would yield 4 sections.

Perfect job for a molder like the Shopfox or W&H. You can get cutters either existing or custom ground to our profile. Do the back then do the front.
Just a thought.

Axis I like it.

I’m thinking rough cut and clean up with a large chamfer.

I usually just buy molding. Its usually not worth my time compared to the cost and look of professional moldings. I’d be worried that that would look to “blocky” and when it separates in various areas you have an unsightly crack.

SMP I don’t know who would carry it. I’ve seen cove crown but not flat like this.

But I do plan to check with my supplier. Thx.
