    Trend seem to have a massive collection and a wide range of distributors
    Their free catalogue offers excellent range of examples

    They don't seem to have anything as bit as those in the pictures. I'm wanting to make my own stile and rail doors from 45mm thick wood. I've found a supplier for those yellow ones in America but would rather get them in the UK.

    Seems like Trend don't do anything larger than those for cabinet doors and thinner wood.

    Have you considered doing the routing as two separate runs, one on the front face to cut half the rebate then turn over the wood and cut the same profile again on the reverse side of the wood.

    Hacking out a moulding around 1.5" wide might be asking a lot of a 1/2" router; more of a job for a spindle moulder.

    Thanks. I'll try out the idea of doing it in two or three runs with different cutters on a few test pieces of wood and see how I get on. That's maybe the cheaper option but it'll require a bit more planning and thinking.
