Yeah, I figured we'd have to go that route. We/I don't have a molder. Doing it on a tablesaw and router would be more expensive time-wise than having a shop do it, I'd think.I don't know what your budget is, but you could always have a knife made to match the profile and have a local shop mill it up if you can't. You may already know this but thought I'd throw it out there.
Yeah, I figured it would be expensive to have it made, especially a small amount. My vote was to just go with new, but I'm not the boss on this job.$300 set up fee here.
That is who I use also, send him a sliver of material, cutter is perfect.
Except you now own the knives....well if you had the molder. Once you have the knife, the cost, material wise, drops through the floor.For that quantity a custom millwork run with new knives ground would be close to a wash with milling it yourself on a table saw...
...so it comes down to how busy you are.
Save time and have it milled?
Keep the milling work in-house and make a little money on it?
If you do it yourself, here is an article on the process I used:
