Default Router Bits Unknown

Hey Everyone!
I am new to routing and just ordered my first router. For my first project I am planning to make the missing piece of the writing shelf on this 1910 Western Electric Type 317 Wall Phone. I have been researching online and am having trouble figuring out what router bits I would need for the edge profile of the side and front of the shelf. The picture with the shelf complete is what it should look like with the missing part restored. Any help with figuring out which bits I need will be very much appreciated!

Hey, NeoXello; welcome!

If you can't find something close and you don't mind paying for it, small router and saw sharpening companies often will make custom bits to your specifications. You just need to get them an accurate profile.

now about that profile...

go to this link to narrow your search down some...
the chances of finding an exact match is pretty slim but you should be able to get close...
keep in mind that you could use a bit that is close enough or segment of several bits to meet your happiness...
look to the Architectural & Furniture Molding Router Bits, Classical Cove & Bead Router Bits and the Ogee Router Bits...

When one is quick to criticize size, one also should be quick to compliment. I think the greeting was as it should be.
