How would you create this detail?

If anyone can help me with this detail, it would be great. I will be happy to get any Roy Underhill ideas, but would love to get some Norm Abrems too.

Hard to tell from the picture, but is the detail proud? Is it the same wood, or different piece/section.

I can imagine doing the bead with a beading tool, making a groove and then gluing in the round piece and rounding off the ends.

Thanks for the reply

No it is not proud. It is all one peace or wood.

It's probably done on a single piece of wood sized to encompass the whole detail. Could be done like a relief carving.

As old as that piece is I'm sure is was hand carved. It is similar to what I put on this cabinet which I carved. The only other way I know it could be done is with a cnc. Hand carving it, most of it is done with a V Groove tool (parting tool) and a gouge with a shallow contour (sweep). It's not particularly difficult to do, it's just time consuming.
