Really enjoying the forum so far. I am reaching out in this post to ask if there's such a bit as a round over bit with rows of decorative Beading?

Appreciate any feedback.

Welcome to the forum Jeff. Do you have any examples of the design you're looking for? Dimension would help as well.

Thank you Roxanne! That Diablo is very close to what I am looking for...I may try it for flat beading. I don't know why, but beading has that old school look that appeals to me.

Thanks for the response Chris. Here's a rough sketch of what I am trying to find. This is a 1" sketch, but ideally I would be looking for smaller if they exist. Fewer beads would also be acceptable.

Thanks sreilly! I posted a sample sketch of what I am looking for below. This sketch was a 1" corner, but ideally I would like to go smaller. Fewer beads would also be acceptable.

Jeff,
I believe the geometry of a single round over bit, as you have sketched it, is impossible. Beading bits can only work on one plane & each bead on a round over would lie on a different plane. The only work around that I can visualize would be to cut a regular round over & then use a scratch stock to shape each individual bead. This would be a tedious operation that would require a different set-up for each bead, something that I would only attempt if I had a commission to repair a valuable antique for someone who had deep pockets.
Sorry I couldn't be more help.
Paul

Only way I can think of to do this is to have a custom blade made for a hand plane, then build a jig to hold the material in place and guide the plane.
