A contour gauge will allow you to get a fairly exact cross-section drawing without having to cut the existing molding:

Search for General Tools Contour Duplicator and you'll find lots of them. I have a cheap one from Harbor Freight.

thanks James.

Carlos, thanks for the contour duplicator, i had no idea such a tool exists. I will keep it in mind for my other projects.

I'm working off a picture I found on the internet so i don't physically have that molding, but i'm thinking of going to the store and seeing if they have one like it, with a contour duplicator it would be super easy to replicate. I'm still having trouble understanding or visualizing how each router bit put together creates a moulding. At the moment it's all a surprise lol I still need to use all the bits together more and get the idea visually.
