Default Beading Bits

Whenever I see projects with beading details I think they really add a nice detail. I intend to purchase one or two next month and wondered what size bit is most common for furniture items.

And if anyone has any special advice on their use or routing them feel free to give me a heads-up. Or if you can direct me to a thread where this subject has be covered, that's cool.

Thanks for reading and Merry Christmas.

May the grain be ever in your favor.

There are a few choices Berry. Sometimes something simple is nice. A little rounding over is okay at times and I've used stopped coves on edges and like the look of that at times. A roundover bit with a smaller bearing so that fillets are left at top and bottom are quite common. If you want more ornate then a roman ogee is the ticket. Fortunately all those bits are relatively cheap because they are relatively small and very common. Size depends on the thickness of board you apply them to.

Hey Berry... I like smallish, understated beading....especially on furniture. Routing a bead is relatively straight forward. Small beads a single pass will do, bigger and then you might want to take 2 or 3ish..

below pics are of a 1/4" bead

Nice work Bill.

I got my beading bits at MLCS. What I do when I want to join two pieces together that have a 90 degree angle is to run a bead on a separate piece of wood then cut off the strips a and put a 45 degree angle on them. I then reattach the strips to the piece I'm building. Trying to butt two beaded pieces together will give you a bad looking joint.

Great info, thanks so much. I'd never even heard of a 'jack' miter before, over the years I must have spent too much time on my day job. Thanks to every one.
