Default Refinish table edge to clean up veneer

Hi Router Forum. I've got a 30 year old table on my sailboat and have replaced the white oak veneer onto it. However, the edges of the veneer is a little ratty and I'd like to router it smooth. The existing edge seems to be a roman ogee edge with a wavy edge. Any idea how to rework this edge? I have a router with a 1/2 bit collett. I have tried several of the major router suppliers: Amana, Rockler and freud without finding the exact bit, or even one close. Attached are pics of the work. Any ideas?

Hi Eric and welcome to the forum. Couldn't see yopu pics so I'm guessing. If I'm right in following what you're saying, it's the solid lipping on the edge of the table that has a wavy shape - rather like a pie crust edge? The ogee profile is no problem, you can find plenty bits to give that, but you might have to make a template for your router to follow the wave as it cuts the ogee.

I've cut it twice and it's still too short! But only at one end.
