Default Looking for a particular template system

Maybe a couple of years back I saw ads for a template system for routing fancy grooves. It used a V bit with a conical guide bearing riding in a slot that varied in width to regulate the depth of the V cut, thus varying it's width. It produced flowing lines that tapered to nothing at the tips.

At the time I thought of it as an expensive one trick pony- a cool gadget. Now I have an application for it. Actually, I just need the bit with the tapered guide bearing. I could possibly get by with just the bearing. If I could remember the name of it.....

If you succeed in making 3D templates would you be so kind as to post an illustrated tutorial, after many years using the 3D system I haven't been successful in making templates.
The shot of the chest lid with the split was taken many years after I made it and hope one day to recall it for renovation.

Thanks for that Harry. I have the bit which I got cheap off ebay but I haven't come across the templates up here yet and to get them sent from the States is too costly. I was considering trying to make them too.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.
