How do I try to re-create this profile?

I'm putting up a new window and a door and I want to match my existing window and door casing. Below is what my existing casing looks like. Is there a router bit that will do this profile in passing? If not, what router bits do I need to accomplish this profile? Thank you.

Easiest would be to check the home centers, lumber yards and building supply stores in your area to see if they stock that profile. If not the only way to make that exact profile is to have a set of knives cut for a planer.

I've checked our local home center and they do not carry it. I wonder if there is a registry somewhere that I can check or compare this against to see whether it matches or come close to my existing casing.

Hard to tell without an end view of the profile or any way to tell how wide it is, but it looks similar to WM366 in oak. Would help if you told us how wide it is. 2 1/4? 3 1/4?

It's hard to see exactly what that profile is--and there are many variations of "oak colonial casing".
Try to locate something close enough at your local lumber yards or builder's supply (try Menards--I like Colonial Casing & for my locale they had the best selection).

There are router bits made to make that cut with the stock held vertically. Examples:

You would need to build a rigid fence to support the stock, use featherboards or rollers to keep the stock tight against the fence, and find a way to push the stock past the tall cutter without losing your fingers in the process.

It's fairly dangerous, but still safer than the very wide cutters required for the stock to be run through horizontally (as on a shaper).

Here's a another pic of the casing I'm trying to re-create if possible.

ItIf it is 2 1/4 wide, you can get that profile at any lumber yard that is worth it's salt.

Ferche F118 / Williamsburg WM366.
