good one on you..
WTB that profile you show is a 2 piece cap...
so finding it as a 1 piece may be a tad iffy...
see it as a little molding sitting on top of a larger molding...
look to astragal moldings for more ideas...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

You're right, i was thinking it's a one piece. Definitely right about it being a two piece.

This stuff is way harder than i thought. This will be a great learning experience.

Thanks a lot for the insight!

oh but it's not hard...
it is actually quite easy...

get your hands on or download some router bit catalogs and you'll envision the pieces coming together..
pictures speak a thousand ideas...
the better bit companies out there...
Freud...
Whiteside...
CMT...
Amana...

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction.

I'm definitely visual so this is going to be fun to try and achieve something like it!

POINT!!!
what ever you do you don't want your finial to hold water...
design to let water run off of the cap...
no sense in promoting rot...

Great information from Stick. Minor point, you can use only part of any bit by cutting the thickness so it fits the portion of the bit you're using, and also by how high you set the bit.

Although I am also a visual thinker, I find it hard to visualize the profile it cuts from looking at the bit. To deal with this, I keep the profile drawing that comes with the bit, with the bit. When cutting small trim profiles, I always cut far more than what I'll ultimately need because things happen, cut a miter the wrong way, cut too short, find a knot, cause a ding. Extra stock saves you bacon.

Welcome to the Forum Andre, you can see why we like it here.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
