Lots of woodworkers ask if there are any router bit sets they should add to their collection once they have the basic roundover, cove, chamfer, and straight bits covered. If you like to build furniture and boxes in classic 17th-Century styles I would recommend the Infinity 17th-Century Router Bit Collection. This 11-piece router bit set includes profiles taken directly from antiques from some of the most iconic periods of British furniture.

If you're like me, the term "17th-century furniture" doesn't conjure up any specific images in my mind. If you break down this time frame into design periods this router bit set takes its inspiration from William & Mary, Queen Ann, and Georgian furniture. Certainly, some of the most iconic furniture ever made came from these periods and remain relevant today.

Individual moldings can be combined and stacked to create eye-catching complex profiles to projects. This profile was made with 17-520 (top), 17-555 (center), and 17-510 (bottom).

These router bits replicate old molding profiles and, as such, are perfectly suited for standalone use. However, with a little creativity, you can stack profiles to create complex molding profiles, as shown above.

These eleven profiles make it very easy to add these classic details to both large and small furniture alike. Everything from large ogee details for the crown and skirt on large chests of drawers, thin drawer division bars with double bead details, or even a final touch to the base of a jewelry box, this set will open up a world of possibilities for your woodworking projects. We've shown the bits and the profiles they create below.
