Default Swans Neck or Shape molding

Is anyone making Swans neck molding for Grandfather clocks or other furniture?
I have completed one set a few years back. Now up to 4 more sets may be needed.
Hoping to find out how others might make their jigs and fixtures. Unable to find any threads that address this process.
As a new member I can't show photos of my setup just yet.

Thanks David

Default Swans neck

Thanks BJ
My setup uses a 1/2" router mounted above the workpiece. The router height is fixed about 2" above the lower table. A bearing on the lower table is used to guide the jig while routing. Verticle adjustment by the plunge router, while the router can be moved horizontally in line with the guide beariing. A router extension is required and multiple shallow cuts. Each molding set is almost one of a kind.
3 different router bits were needed for my molding.
Will post photos when I get my 10 posts.

Thanks David
