Update: I pulled the plug and opted for a custom bit. $190. I could not find a suitable match locally or online. Three weeks out until I can test.

As in surgery, it pays to do it right first time. You won’t remember the cost of the bit in a couple years, but you would get irritated every time you saw the difference between a “close” reproduction and the real thing. Did you send them a piece of molding from the broken door so they can fettle the bit exactly?

Yes, I cut the broken door and sent them a sample. Quick turnaround quote. Better than surfing the net and spending $$ on two different bits to get close enough. It’s not expensive, just have to be patient on turnaround. For a novice woodworker, this is a really cool learning experience so far. I’m glad this forum exists.

You have saved yourself an awful lot of curse words, and can maintain your cupboards indefinitely.
