Default Help finding bit

Hi,

I am a complete amateur so do not know what to call this edging treatment so do not know what bit I need or under what name to search for it. Need to more or less match shelf edging on an old
cupboard I'm fixing up.

Thank you,

Alan Smith

the bit you are looking for is called a beading bit...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

They come in different sizes depending on what you want the radius of the rounded part to be. The link shows a bit that will make a narrow flat bottomed groove but they are available that will will make a pointed groove too.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

To get the sharp V groove you'll need a point roundover bit for the dips and a roundover bit for the edges.

When everything around you is going to pot, get out in the workshop.

Thanks to everyone for the help. I thought it was a beading bot but the ones I looked at were not right.
Then I thought it might be a reeding bit but.....
I'm on it.

It seems each seller has a different specific name for the bit, the bit shown by the links given by Angie is called a Beading bit by Lee Valley, a Full Bead by Infinity, a Leaf Edge Beading by Amana, Point Cutting Roundover by Whiteside and MLCS, etc. These bits all would require two cuts on each corner to get the profile you want.

Amana has two bits that might do it in one cut. They call one a Drawing Line bit, and another an Edge Beading bit.

If you choose to go wth Amana please heed the advice of @Stick486 to be sure it is made in Israel and not China.

(Please note that by one cut I mean possibly multiple passes without changing the height of the workpiece relative to the bit.)

No, a beading bit in a router table with the piece standing on edge just like shown will round over the bottom corner and put the rounded groove in. Then the piece will need to be inverted and run past the bit again to do the other groove and edge.

Here is a sample picture of a beading bit, but there are several slightly different
versions. Do a search to find the exact profile that you want.

Corner Beading Router Bits - Toolstoday.com - Industrial Quality Carbide Tipped Router Bits

You would use this one set to produce the shape on the lower picture to the right of the bit image, but with the bit and image upside down since the bit should be in a router table for this operation.
