Topic tags/keywords: question shaker router

Hi all, I am going to start on some shaker peg boards and I am looking for your recommendations on the best beading bit for the traditional look. Source and model # would be helpful…Any help would be great! Thanks!

David at Infinity Tools has a selection here.

I notice some are on sale—great timing!

I have used a lot of his router bits and numerous saw blades and they’re all top quality, professional grade stuff.

I have to echo Lee’s opinion of Infinity. Great bit and blades. But for variety you can’t beat Lee Valley.

Thanks all for the suggestions.. But heres my problem.. I looked at those sites and I’m still not sure which bit to use… Most are edge beading with a bearing on the top.. This would not do shaker type beading on the flat of the board.. Or am I completly wrong??? Heres a picture I found on the web..Thanks!

I use the Freud 99-024 beading bit for my Shaker Peg and coat racks.
