Default I want to profile! A drawer front.

I am not a woodworker by any means but own a router. :-) I renovate old houses and need to replace some drawer fronts. I am attaching a photo of the edge profile I'd like to at least get close to. 3/4" stock, 3/8" width of cut. I really appreciate your help. This will be w/ a portable router BTW.

MLCS Edge Banding and Roman Ogee Router Bits Use Ogee Fillet bit and adjust depth of cut to match existing parts.

welcome to the forums Bill...

I'll take a stab it...

you have a portion of a guttering bit, ogee bit, molding bit, thumbnail or fingernail bit...
you are going to have to look at a lot of pictures to get even close...

Welcome to the forum Bldn. Follow Tom's advice. Quite a few profile bits will make a profile with or without fillets (the flat vertical edge at top or bottom of a profile. The difference can be the depth of cut or using two different diameter guide bearings on the bit.

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.
