I am realizing that the $39.95 package of beaded door trim and corner rosettes amounts to 86.00 per door, and with about 10 doors to do, I've decided to mill them myself, thank you very much. I found a great site for purchasing the rosettes, so that leaves the beaded (rope, I think, see image) trim. I measured and THOSE BEADS are 15/32" WIDE and about 3/32" deep.
I realize I can buy a rope cutting bit (but I'm not sure if that's the correct term or where to buy by dimensions), or I can buy something like the image below for cutting against the side, however the flat part next to the shank would be in the way if the ropes were to butt up against each other, so that's not really the bit I need.
Question is, which method should I use, and can someone suggest a part number exact part name for the type of bit I'd use. I am leaning to the second method but appreciate an experienced voice. However, this post is about the correct name for either bit so I know how to find it. This would be milled from clear pine. Thanks!
