Question Trying to find the right conbination bit or bits for drawer front

I have been a long time lurker of the forums but I find myself in need of help. I have learned two lessons the hard way so I am trying to avoid a third. The first thing was the cheap rail and stile bits are more of a pain than the savings. I tried some no brand and they were a no fit. I wasted a Saturday only to find out it was the bits themselves that were the issue. I shelled out the money for a set of Frued rail and stile set (99-763) and was able to finish my doors with no issues. Secondly I brought a cheap router table router combo (Blue Hawk) and I am having to make due with it. The thing vibrates so much the router plate leveling screws fall off and and now I have hot glued everything in place. The only good thing is it accepts 1/2" which I now see is great for bigger projects. My Dewalt DWP611PK is good for small jobs but I needed something a little more robust. I am now looking to add a decorative profile to my cabinet doors I have built for my walk-up bar. I created 3 base cabinets (24", 30", and 18") and three wall cabinets (30"x30", 30"x30", and 18" x 36"). I would like to add a nice profile to the cabinet doors and drawer fonts but can't seem to find the correct bit on the Freud website (not very novice friendly). I am using 3/4" popular for my stock. I would like something along the lines of MLCS 7854 which is a door edge profile combined with #7856 which is a round over and ogee door lip profile.


Sample look - mlcswoodworking.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/smarthtml/pages/bt_door.html#


Any help is greatly appreciated. If one bit will not create it please let me know what the steps should be to achieve such a look. Like which bit to use first.

Thanks,

Novice Woodworker

Stick486 - That's the catalog I spent about 1 hour looking through last night and did not see what I was looking for. I am still not experienced enough to envision the cut the bit will make without going to the individual bit and waiting for the gif to change to show the profile the bit will make. The closet thing was like what Semipro listed.

hawkeye10 - I joined after we brought our new house and had a list of projects I wanted to do...lol. Then the Honey Do list out paced my projects. I am finally getting around to do things I want to do...lol.



I guess I should have gave some more background on what I had researched. I think I need something called a thumbnail bit to make the hard edge then the curve but I can't seem to find that in their catalog. When I search their site for thumbnail it does not give me anything close to what I want. I could not find a double flute bit that would make a hard edge on the top and cut the backside of the wood.

Maybe you can do a quick pencil drawing of the profile you want...? Then take a pic of it and post...

I just realized I did not attach my project when I posted. Well this is what I have so far. The picture of the door edge is my feeble attempt of making a decorative edge with what I had on hand. I had a 1/8 round over laying around in my bits and it gave the edge a little character but I think I needs more. The room to the left is for my fish room.

If you want pic 3 on an edge, a roundover bit will do it...example...
