Default Baseboard heat covers

Looking for some advice. I built some simple baseboard covers for a basement bathroom out of mdf but for the living room I want to class them up a bit. What bit would I use to create the design on the face of this example?

J , just guessing but that looks like a stamped metal or molded plastic cover. My guess it would be rather involved to duplicate in wood in one piece. Maybe a CNC? otherwise the raised panel portion would have to be built in pieces like a panel door and then assembled into a single unit.

Welcome to the forum J. Is that just an air register that the cover hides?

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.

That is very similar, Bill, but not the same pattern with the long bevel on the inner side. The only way I can think of duplicating is in separate pieces.
But your solution would be good way to do it in a one piece board and have the same effect but a little different pattern. If I were to do that I would use your suggestion. If there were several to do a good template a Faux bit with a bottom bearing in a plunge router should work. Would reqiure some hand work in the corners, I suspect.

I agree with Herb. A reasonably precise copy requires separate pieces as the profile on the outer edge of the raised panel profile is not a duplicate of the inner profile.

Agreed there will be rounded corners. OP could use some choices

Thanks, I think that faux bit will work perfectly. I have a pic of another less intricate option that looks like it's exactly what was used.
