I am installing crown on my cabinets and using a 1x3 starter strip to ensure the crown reaches the ceiling.

On the 1x3, I am trying to achieve a profile similar to what is attached.

Can anyone please help identify what bit would give me this profile?

Thank you
Steve in MA

Looks like the right size double round over bit might do it...

No way I'd try to do something this elaborate on one piece of super expensive wood. Stick nailed it.

Thank you for your replies. I bought the paint to match the cabinets so the boards i am working with are 1x3 maple boards from my local lumber yard, routed and painted to match.

Steve; the original would have been done on a shaper with proprietary cutters, likely by a custom millwork shop. Not necessarily for your home alone; it might have been (most likely was) a commercial production product. Depending on how much you need, it might be worth your time and money to have the full profile reproduced with a new shaper cutter (not cheap!) and have a few feet run off...maybe even some extra(?).

Dan is correct about the original being produced with either a shaper or moulder. If the starter board is basically just a rectangular piece then you could cut a bullnose on a thin board then cut that off on a table saw and glue/ pin nail it to the rectangle. Here is a selection of bullnose bits to show what I mean. https://www.amazon.ca/8milelake-Bul...=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B076HKFC73

There is a decent chance you would be able to see the line between them though if you looked for it.
