Default Help finding a profile

We had a double oven which I pulled out and converted into a pantry and had a door made for it. The edging on the door doesn't match the old doors though and I'm having trouble finding a router bit to do it. Its basically a recessed roundover. I've seen some plunge router bits that seems they would work fine but I'd like to be able to buy bit in a store to get this done this coming weekend, and I don't see any local stores that carry those. Am I missing something simple here, is there an easy way to make this profile? I've attached a picture with my great MS Paint skills to give an example of the profile.

Thanks,
Vince

Another search term that might help you find a bit with this profile is "ovolo". That's what it would be called here anyway.

Ovolo if it were a plunge bit, on the edge a profile yeah. Round over bit with undersized bearing

Default Roundover Bit

The Roundover bit on page 12 of the Whiteside Catalog looks like it would cut the profile you are looking for - assuming you can raise it high enough to cut the size lip that you need.

I have 2 CMT Ovolo bits I bought around 01 or 02 for a restoration project from the early 1820s or 30s. I don't know why they call them ovolo bits, I figured it was some fancy Italian word.

Outside of the profiles for ovolos and plunge round overs, to me are likened to the foxhound and English harrier they look pretty much the same but the harrier is a stockier dog, like the ovolo.

I recently bought a Whiteside 2058 for a project, my first instinct was to go to the CMT book but they didn't have the bit I wanted, (too short and stocky). The 2058 has a longer, narrower and more graceful taper to the tip.

I make that profile all the time with a regular round over bit, some times I even to it purposly. I just put an undersized bearing on the bit and extend the bit through the base a little. You might need a set of bearings of various sizes. I think the HF roundover set has everything you need to make that profile including the extra bearings.

Thanks for all the responses I bought a combo roundover/beading bit that came with a few bearings and got it to be the exact same match.
