I have to copy an existing drawer front. It has beading (or something like it) about 1/2” from the edges—if you stand the drawer on its face, it looks like this, with three grooves and two beads on each edge.
Any advice? I tried building a matching scratch stock, but I am using butternut and it gets really fuzzy when using a scraper. The router bits I have seen are for beading the EDGE of the stock, or for creating bigger beads—these are about 7/32 center to center. I ran a “vee” bit, but the grooves are too fat—the valleys are not sharp and deep enough.
Thanks for any insight.
