Default Profile advice

This newbie needs a bit of advice on the attached pic. This is an accent piece of a dresser I want to duplicate. Could this have been done with a v groove bit or a plunge round over or a combination of multiple bits? The v looks softer that sample profiles I've seen and a plunge round over makes a wider gap at the bottom.
Thanks for any tips in tackling this.

Best
Eric

Welcome Eric..
to the best place you need to be...

I'll take a stab at it...

the block/rail is an add on...
the top edges are done w/ a round over bit..
the ''V'' notches are done w/ a handrail finger grip bit...
or a portion od a handrail profile..

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

Stick....

Close to a finger pull profile for cupboard doors too, where you don`t use handles or knobs.

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.

Hi Eric; I see you live in Crossville. Next time you get close to Murfreesboro drop in and say hello.

PS- Don't tell any one but this is a great place to hang out.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I initially started with the overall shape and then started working in what order I would make the cuts to get the shape and then got confused on how I would present the piece to the awaiting bit. But stick just looked at the end grain of the wood to see symmetry and then do glue on addition for square profile.

Thanks Stick

Hello,
I'd like to circle back on this question/post and I need to say as a novice I don't want to offend any of the experienced woodworkers that have made suggestions. But, I can't seem to find a router profile that would come close to duplicating this piece. A handrail bit creates a far wider groove that could match this piece and I haven't seen any that could replicate the somewhat uniform smooth rounded groove that appears. I do want to add that (if not obvious) this is a 2" X 3/4" rail that is attached to the edge of an existing cabinet for purely decorative purposes. Only 1 side is visible so I'm not sure why they routed on both sides. Again, maybe a bit was able to route both sides at the same time and I don't have the vision to see what kind of bit that would be. I also looked at cabinet finger grips but nothing looks to work for this. Maybe if someone has a suggestion (or link) to a specific bit they think would work....

Thanks guys.
Eric
