Beading with bench chisels
Some time ago I did a small project that included some minor triangular beading. It consisted of marking/knife-walling the outer edges of the bead and chiseling with a wide bench chisel; no special beading planes. The outcome was not spectacular, but not bad either, for a first go. And the process was not difficult, just a bit time consuming.
I was wondering if there is a widely known technique for using simple tools for beading? Is it worth the investment to buy a set of beading tools?
