how to achieve this bead

This is my first post here and am wondering if someone could set me straight on how to achieve this early panel profile. I think its just a simple 1x10 shiplap board but im not sure how to create the thin bead on the edge. I dont have a bit that would make this. im thinking there probably a bunch of ways to make this happen. so my question is, how would they have made this in the 19th century and whats the best method today?
thank alot

Are those solid wood panels or man-made?

I cannot see what thin bead on the edge you are writing about. Can you provide a magnified picture?

thanks David for the magnification. The panels are solid wood. these panels may be newer wood but were made to match the original from a house in the late 1700s in New England

You need a beading bit, a router table, and some way to put a rabbit on the edge of each board. That could be a router bit or a table saw.

This is actually an easy profile to duplicate. The bead is there to hide wood movement and make the gap between the boards less noticeable.

Examples of Beading bit.

Thanks Terry, yeah that looks like it will do it. I have a bit that would make this profile with a larger bead but the thin bead made me wonder of other ways to make this. I thought of just setting my table saw 1/8" to make this but then the roundover part on the end i wasnt sure about. Maybe some type of plane could have rounded the edges.
i guess now im curious about how they would have made this a few hundred years ago.

the simple answer is 'bead plane'
like many decorative edges, old timers just made a plane to make the edge
this guy is a little full of bs, just skip to the 6 min mark


3 examples of differ size bead planes



today would be a shaper or moulding head

It looks like there is a hollow next to the bead so if you want an exact duplicate you'll need another bit to create that.

There are also bead cutters that go in the table saw.
