Default Picture frame router bit

I need to make a bunch of art frames for my wife and family. I am in search of a router bit or a series of simpler cuts that will produce a nice profile picture frame molding. The pictures I have in mind are about 24x30 - I am thinking of a finished frame 1 1/2" - 2" wide. I can handle the rabbet for the glass, matting, art, and backing.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

CMT makes a classic molding bit that is almost 2 inches wide. I use it at diffrent hights and distance from the fence to come up with dozens of profile combinations. You can use the whole bit for a nice profile on 2 inch stock. I recogmend if you use the whole bit not to do it one pass. Take a little at a time. It is quit a bit of wood to remove at one pass.

Rockler sells a couple of special profile bits that can be used for all sorts of different combinations.

This is a OLD post but if anyone is looking for a bit to make picture frames this one works great..

Picture Frame Rabbet Bits

http://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shops...ram_rab_anchor

I recommend part #8623

The front of the picture frame can be just about any router bit you have or want to use..

Does CMT bit have a Stock Number or other identifier?
