If you have limited router experience it's best to practice on a scrap piece of wood first.

Large round-over bit I would assume.

Hard to tell if the bottom section is part of the same profile.

Search "window sill bit" for choices.

You might be able to make a similar piece by making a rabbet at the bottom (with a router bit or on a table saw) and then a large round over at the top edge of the rabbet. If the lower section has a curve in it you might be able to duplicate that with a small core box bit.

It can also be made with two bits, maybe 1/2" and 1/4" radius rounding bits?

I think it was just a large round over bit. I bought a kit with some so I will give it a try.

Thanks for the help.
