Topic tags/keywords: bead scraper

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.

You might be able to use this head with the cutter shown. It is for a tablesaw.

Here is another type for a tablesaw. It also comes with the bead knife. You will need to make sure of the dimensions.

You will need to make or get an insert for the tablesaw in order to be safe.

Looks like a moulding head is the way to go—simple and easy to understand. I will see what I can find. Only gotta make 4 drawers, so a bit of messing around won’t kill me :)

Thanks, everyone!
